P4. Physical Activity in the Workplace
11 August, 2014
Submitted: 29 March, 2015
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.
In the last year, we have offered a wide range of physical activity challenges to our staff. These have included a range of exercise classes including Zumba, yoga, box fit, walking clubs, running clubs, ballroom dancing and a cycle challenge. We have identified a number of health and well being ambassadors who have become engaged in organising a further range of local events within their teams and departments; these have included archery and participation in a triathalon.
We have continued with a cycle scheme and discounted membership of gyms and fitness clubs.
For example, supporting/sponsoring local physical activity programmes, promoting physical activity to customers through website campaigns or in-store materials.
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.
Has the number of your employees participating in your workplace physical activity programmes increased since last year? If unknown, please explain why.
it is difficult to say with certainty whether this has increased due to the number of events now organised at departmental level for which data is not captured centrally
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.
