Active Workplace - Two women being physically activity at work

How to become an 'Active Workplace':

  • Promote entries into our inter-workplace sport competitions and leagues
  • Encourage Active Travel to and from work
  • Take up sport offers such as Loop at Work (table tennis)
  • Encourage the breaking up of sedentary behavior - promote a midday mile
  • Run a Wellbeing day or week to include health assessments
  • Engage staff through our Physical Activity Champions training
  • Promote local sports clubs and activities
  • Motivate staff to be engaging in local sporting challenges and fundraising opportunities
  • Write an action plan to support the implementation of all the above

We can work with you on all of this and welcome a conversation to discuss in more detail, please do get in contact:

case study - rolls royce

Rolls Royce based in Filton, N Bristol have worked with Wesport throughout the past year to address the challenges linked to the stresses of a busy working environment and an increasingly sedentary workforce. The company leadership team and Health and Wellbeing lead as part of their global Livewell health and wellbeing scheme were keen to engage with more local opportunities for their workforce. A partnership agreement was reached with an initial action being to undertake a staff survey to understand the barriers and motivations of employees for becoming more active around the working day. Upon analysis of this data, we then helped to put in place a programme of activity including:
• Initial Yoga taster as part of International Womens Day
• Subsequent on-site yoga sessions set up
• Guidance on developing an outside area with placement of Table Tennis table
• Signposted staff to local Inter-workplace competitions
• Walking Sports taster and sports fair
• Internal summer activity tracking team challenge
• Peer nomination programme
• Physical Activity Champion training
