1 January, 2013
Submitted: 8 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.
BP continues to encourage employees to engage in physical activity. Showers and changing rooms on most sites encourage employees to help make best use of available activities.
The number of employees participating in oppertunities for physical activity at work continues to increase year on year. This includes an increase in popular programmes such as an internal football tournament, and new participants in new activities such as group personal training offers.
BP also has an annual global fitness challenge which has increasing participation from employees worldwide.
Surveys of individuals taking part in some of the internal challneges demonstrates an increase in personal health and wellbeing as a result.
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.
There has been an increase of participation, measured in a variety of ways - use of facillities, participation in bespoke challenges and membership of individual clubs.
