Getting active in the workplace
In 2014 and 2015 we stepped up our efforts to promote physical activities for employees, in line with our pledge under the Public Health Responsibility Deal. This included providing onsite workplace gyms, encouraging employees to take part in local sports events and clubs, and discounts for sports activities.
We encourage a flexible approach so that employees can fit in some exercise during the working day. Our head office gym offers a variety of private and group fitness classes throughout the day, led by a personal trainer.
Since 2012 we’ve been working with our charity of choice, Action for Children, to raise money for vulnerable children across the UK. During 2014 and 2015, more than 80 employees took part in a range of challenging sports events to support the charity, including the London Marathon, Great North Run, Yorkshire Three Peaks, the Great North Swim and Tough Mudder.
