P4. Physical Activity in the Workplace
1 January, 2013
Submitted: 29 April, 2013
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 London 2012 Olympics was the stimulas for a number of promotions to encourage increased physical activity across our workforce. Over 200 staff partipated in the NHS North West London cluster 'FitBug' walking challenge during the Summer. We also continued to promote our own 'I heart' bicycle loan and pedometer loan programmes.
We published a list of shower facilities across all sites, improving the information we provide to people who wish to be more physically active on their journey to work or within work time.
We are soon to be launching a staff physical activity campaign called 'iMove'. In collaboration with local gym providers we will be offering staff healthchecks, gym taster sessions and access to team sports.
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.
