1 January, 2013
Submitted: 20 December, 2011
We have ensured that encouraging physical activity is embedded in our working culture. We discussed the pledge at its launch in March in our quarterly staff briefing meeting when as well as pushing our gym membership and running club we also encouraged colleagues to use the stairs and walk to meetings. We will talk about the Responsibility Deal in general and this pledge in particular at future briefings.We also have showers available in our building and a place to store bikes and 4 colleagues now regularly cycle to work. We offer subsidised gym membership at a local gym and have ensured the offer is part of our induction programme for all starters. We currently have 12 of our 54 colleagues in membership and hope to increase that number.Colleagues have also organised a running club which meets regularly for runs after work. We also encouraged all our female colleagues to participate in the Race for Life 5km run and 16 took part in May.
