P4. Physical Activity in the Workplace
1 January, 2013
Submitted: 28 May, 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.
We ran our Wellbeing weight loss challenge in its 4th year which continues to grow in participation. This year to 2,800 participants up 40% on the year.
We continue to drive support for employees using physical activity as a means to fundraise in our annual Plan A charity challenge - activates across the business and provide employees with inspiration on taking on new exercise via our healthy lifestyle guides on our employee wellbeing site. We also recognise the importance of balancing a focus on employee's physical health with mental health and have for the first time in 2014 launched a targeted mental health awareness campaign as the beginnings of a 3 year strategy around this area building on the public commitment made to the MIND Time to Change pledge in 2014 on tackling mental health stigma in the workplace.
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.
