P2. Physical Activity Guidelines
1 January, 2013
Submitted: 26 March, 2014
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.
We encourage employees to take part in physical activity via a variety to initiatives. All employees at our major sites have access to on-site gym facilities. Our sport and leisure partner ClubAZ offer access to sports sections including running, football, badminton, archery, hiking and squash. We promote physical activity by providing support materials on our health & wellbeing portal pages. In 2013, for the sixth consecutive year, we participated in the Global Corporate Challenge (GCC). Over 3,668 of our employees from many AZ global locations including Mexico, US, UK, Sweden, Poland, Japan and India took part, walking over 4.7 billion steps collectively. Participants reported feeling healthier, having lost many (welcome) pounds in weight, were sleeping better and had more energy.
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.
The revised Chief Medicial Officers (CMO) guidelines provide physical activity recommendations for four distinct age groups. From the following list, please indicate the age groups you have focused on in disseminating the guidelines (if unknown, please explain why):
Early years (under 5s), Children & young people (5-18), Adults (19-64), Older adults (65+)
Please estimate the number of people reached through your activities on this pledge and explain how you arrived at this estimate:
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.
