1 January, 2013
Submitted: 30 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.
During 2014/2015 we accelerated our activities to promote physical activities for employees. We have continued to provide a variety of opportunities for physical activity in the workplace, from our onsite gyms, local sports activities and clubs and discounted schemes for sports activities.
Employees are encouraged to use our flexible working approach to exercise during the day and at our Head Office gym, a variety of classes are available with a personal trainer available for private tuition to encourage, support and build employees fitness or activity levels.
During 2014/2015 through working with our charity of choice partner Action for Children, over 80 employees took part in numerous externally organised events such as The Great North Run, Yorkshire Three Peaks, The Great North Swim and Tough Mudder.
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.
