The company is part of the cycle to work scheme supporting physical activity. The company Environment sustainability policy supports physical activity by encouraging staff to use public transport for business and day to day travel. This has had a direct impact on the number of staff walking to stations.
DHC also promotes healthy lifestyle that looks at the need for exercise and diet. These initiatives are supported by the MSK and Fitness staff employed within the company.
We are also reviewing the possibility of linking with a chain of fitness centres to provide subsided membership to employees. we are in the development stages of developing and designing our own ‘in-house’ Virtual Fitness Website which whilst initially will only be made available to clients, it may be rolled out to employees in the future
