P4. Physical Activity in the Workplace
1 January, 2013
Submitted: 30 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.
We encouraged our staff to sign up to the recent workplace challenge, with 100% take up. We work remotely, primarily from home and we encourage flexible working to allow time to exercise. All of our team meetings have a physical activity element, we've had a go at geo caching, walking and cycling. We are part of the bike to work scheme and have introduced a mileage rate for cycling.
For example, supporting/sponsoring local physical activity programmes, promoting physical activity to customers through website campaigns or in-store materials.
As part of our Village Games project we worked with employees at Chesterfield Borough Council to facilitate workplace yoga and jogging groups.
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.
17 100% of staff took place in the recent Workplace Challenge campaign, logging their physical activity. All staff take part in physical activity sessions during team meetings.
Has the number of your employees participating in your workplace physical activity programmes increased since last year? If unknown, please explain why.
Yes - more staff have joined the company and as taking part is not optional, they have had to take part!
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.
