We recognise and actively promote physical exercise as a benefit to improve healthier lifestyles. Ginsters encourages cycling and walking to work as part of our green travel plan commitments.
All employees have access to safe, secure, covered cycle parking facilities. Our main site has changing and shower facilities.
We have eight cycles on site available for employees to try cycling to and from work. Additionally, we have worked collaboratively with the local council to improve and extend foot and cycle paths in the local area including one that now connects us to the most local rail link.
We encourage a range of walking activities including voluntary weekend and lunchtime walking events and through the bi-annual charity challenge events, promoting walking and cycling encourage our staff to choose cycling and walking above the car or public transport as a means to access the workplace.
We include cycle maintenance sessions in our ‘Learning at Work’ days to assist people gain confidence.
