There are several ways in which we have set about supporting this to date: -By providing the relevant links on our Wellbeing intranet page.-Through quarterly themes, such as our 2012 Q3 theme- Active Lifestyles.-We produced a tool kit for our wellbeing champions, which included suggestions and promotional material on how to increase activity levels in the work place at home. This addressed not only aerobic activity, but included the revised physical activity guidelines based around strength training and the importance of including this into daily life.-Running pedometer challenges based on the recommended 10,000 steps a day-Promoting Walking Running clubs/ routes at a number of our sites-As a result of our Bupa health screens, employees are provided with supporting information and recommendations based on increasing physical activity- Providing subsidised and discounted gym membership, to encourage staff to be ActiveFuture Plan: We will continue to build upon these types of activities to further more support the recommended physical activity guidelines and to help support our employees to lead a healthy and active lifestyle.
