P4. Physical Activity in the Workplace
23 January, 2014
Submitted: 28 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.
The Cycle 2 Work Scheme is available to all employees at specific times during the year. The excellent participation levels have resulted in significant increases in cycle storage being required at work locations.
A number of our projects have determined that bikes are a suitable means of transport and have been made available. At lunch time the bikes are available for those who wish to undertake physical activity.
We offer all employees an opportunity to take a paid days absence, per annum, to undertake voluntary work which benefits their community.
Over the last 12 months charity fund raising events have include activities as diverse as dragon boat races to triathlons. As part of our 150 year anniversary we are intending to raise up to £150,000 to be shared between our chosen charities, MacMillan and Help for Heroes
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.
