Active Workplace

Become an Active Workplace

We're encouraging businesses to become an Active Workplace - to get employees in Cumbria active - before, during or after work. With the average person spending 60% of their waking time at work and an estimated 24% of Cumbrian adults classed as obese, the workplace offers a real opportunity to advocate the benefits of leading an active and healthy lifestyle.

Physical activity in workplace programmes have been shown to reduce sickness absence by 20%

If you're interested in becoming an Active Workplace, share this page or any of the resources with your boss, HR manager or whoever it is in your organisation that will make the change.
