P4. Physical Activity in the Workplace
1 January, 2013
Submitted: 19 April, 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.
Our work with schools has and always will target staff. Our STARS scheme helps to record how staff travel to and from school and as part of a scheme any school wishing to progress through to our silver and gold level must ensure that staff are involved in active travel initiatives.
We are also developing a work place platform linked to new developments and organisations interested in promoting active travel - due to go live in June 2015
For example, supporting/sponsoring local physical activity programmes, promoting physical activity to customers through website campaigns or in-store materials.
Our work with our members (LAs) across the country is about sharing best practice linked to sustainable and active travel. We have the facility to share best practice as well as ensure that staff in schools around the country are aware through our newsletter of what local and national initiatives they can get involved in. Modeshift is also looking to expand into work places ensuring that our member LAs can find out more about best local practice.
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.
We have around 14,000 school enrolled in our STARS programme.
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.
