P4. Physical Activity in the Workplace
24 June, 2014
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.
The promotion of walking activities during lunch breaks has been successful and to capitalise on this initiative we have expanded the range of walking routes available to employees at Head Office.
We are also considering subsidising the purchase of pedometers and encouraging employees to download free smartphone apps that track physical activity, particularly walking apps that track the WHO target of 10,000 paces a day.
A league table has been created to foster a spirit of competition in relation to the number of daily and weekly paces achieved.
A proposal is being considered for an enhanced lunchtime to allow employees more time to fit a walk in.
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.
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.
