Dairy Crest Limited
P4. Physical Activity in the Workplace
1 January, 2013
Submitted: 30 March, 2012
Dairy Crest is committed to helping our employees increase the amount of physical activity they do throughout their working day. To support this we have installed gym facilities at our two main offices in Claygate and Aldershot, and we will investigate how we can roll similar initiatives across our other sites. In addition to this we have set up an Occupational Health MOT scheme, and developed the 8 week challenge scheme, that encourages employees who take part to develop a healthier and more active lifestyle both at work and home. We continue to run these schemes throughout the year and we will be organising physical activity promotional events with our charity partner the British Heart Foundation. Through our MY Rewards scheme we have offered cycle to work schemes for employees, and provide changing and showering facilities in most of our larger sites. We continue to offer discount schemes with retailers of bicycles and other leisure equipment/activities.
