As a nation, we need to move more. Busy modern lifestyles see many of us being too inactive, which can have serious consequences for our health. An inactive, unhealthy population costs employer’s money in lost time and puts unsustainable pressure on our National Health Service. Employers, Government and the NHS are all, therefore, increasingly recognising the need to promote and facilitate active and healthy lifestyles.
A proactive health and wellbeing programme is increasingly seen as a must for any good employer; it offers a mechanism by which employers can attract and retain the best workforce, by not only providing the appropriate physical environment, but by supporting individuals with a wider range of ‘softer’ initiatives, aimed at promoting all round well-being.
We believe the commute has an important role to play in this process. It’s a journey many people make daily, and many could do so by running, walking or cycling. We work with clients to develop and implement strategies aimed at getting more people to walk, cycle or run to work.
