P4. Physical Activity in the Workplace
1 January, 2013
Submitted: 29 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.
In mid-2011, the Advertising Association installed a shower for staff, to encourage them to take physical exercise during the working day. Of 18 staff, 4 now go for a run at lunchtimes; 3 have pledged to take the stairs every day. 4 members of staff walk all or part of the way to and from work. During 2015, 7 members of staff signed up for a 5k office run as the start of the office running club. 2 staff members regularly take yoga classes before work on Fridays, and 4 are regular gym-goers.
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.
