Submitted: 30 April, 2014
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.
We have promoted an early morning gym training session before work with a personal trainer.
We have promoted charity events for our employee's such as: Football, Rugby, Marathon, 3 peaks challenge.
We have promoted a stretch and flex session before manual handling activities at work.
We have taken part in Rowing challenges in the work place.
We have allowed time off for rugby training as a company.
For example, supporting/sponsoring local physical activity programmes, promoting physical activity to customers through website campaigns or in-store materials.
We have promoted our stretch and flex campaign to our clients.
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.
We have sponsored to local football teams.
We have started preparations to organise and sponsor a construction rugby union league.
We have sponsored transport to charity events such as 3 peaks and football competitions.
Organised Kelly Formwork cup for charity football competition between two sponsored teams
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.
Approx 60 - 40 employees every morning in a mandatory start of shift briefing. 10 participated in rugby training and match. 4 play for local sponsored football team. 6-8 attend gym in the morning for personal training sessions organised by company.
Has the number of your employees participating in your workplace physical activity programmes increased since last year? If unknown, please explain why.
This is our first year. We have had a massive involvement from the majority of our employee's. Depending on jobs, our labour fluctuates so it is hard to compare numbers.
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.
Yes. The list of the events that took place last year would not have taken place if we did not sign up to the pledge. We are looking forward to the year ahead in order to try and beat the year before.
