Active Workplace

We're encouraging businesses to offer anĀ 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.

The three main aims of Active Workplace are:

  • To increase awareness of the importance of workplace health initiatives
  • To promote the benefits of offering physical activity opportunities to employees
  • To provide organisations with information and opportunities to promote to their staff i.e. taster sessions, courses of activities and competitions
