P4. Physical Activity in the Workplace
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.
Physical activity and exercise is a major part of the work we do at Lets Get Healthy. We work mainly with adults (19-64), provide physical activity recommendations for both employees and their children. Our online resources also provide information on these guidelines. It is estimated that Let's Get Healthy has reached over 40 organisations and their employees in the past year.
On top of this Lets Get Healthy have trained over 40 Workplace Health Champions to a Level 3 accreditation to implement workplace health initiatives and campaigns to help better the health of employees, reduce absence, increase presenteeism and remove barriers to an active lifestyle.
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 participated in your workplace physical activity programmes over the last year 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 participating in your workplace physical activity programmes increased since last year? If unknown, please explain why.
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.
