P3. Active Travel
1 January, 2013
Submitted: 18 June, 2013
Through your physical activity pledges you will be working with employees, customers/consumers and/or local communities. For each group (as applicable) please describe the specific activities or projects you have undertaken over the past year.
For example, employee incentive schemes to promote physical activity, awareness raising activities or improvements to facilites to promote active travel.
For example, supporting/sponsoring local physical activity programmes, promoting physical activity to customers through website campaigns or in-store materials.
Within the workplace programmes currently launched with clients (employers) across the UK, Lets Get Healthy encourages active travel and also provides a pedometer challenge. The challenge is set up in workplace environments and promotes walking to work and car pools in order to increase team and individual performance and basic activity levels.
Within our own teams we often car pool or utilise public transport when delivering our services across the UK.
For example, support for community-based physical activity programmes (such as funding, sponsorship or other promotion activity), working with local partners to engage communities is physical activity opportunities.
Please estimate the number of your employees who report they are regularly using active modes of travel and explain how you arrived at this estimate.
As physical activity and exercise is a major part of the work we do at Lets Get Healthy and our programmes are rolled out to all employees, it is estimated that Lets Get Healthy has reached over 40 organisations and their employees in the past year.
Has the number of your employees using active modes of travel increased since last year? If unkwown, please explain why:
If your active travel pledge activities have focused on customers or local communities, have you observed or measured any increases in active travel in these groups? If yes, please provide details and where you have been able to measure this please explain how you arrived at this estimate.
We would be interested to know if your pledge activity over the last year has delivered a measurable increase in participation in physical activity. If so, please describe and provide an estimate of the level of increase and how you measured this. There is a 2000-character limit when completing this section.
