Active Workplace Champions Workshop (March)

  • Date
    19 Mar 2020
  • Time
    09:30 - 12:30
  • The Library, GreaterSport, The National Squash Centre & Regional Arena, Rowsley Street, Manchester, M11 3FF

Introducing an active workplace plan can seem like a huge task. Employers are often put off: how will they fit the plan into their schedule? Can they manage it alone?

At GreaterSport, we alleviate this worry by offering active champions training in the workplace. Active champions are employees you can choose to lead physical activity in your workplace. They help you by delivering active workplace plans and support their colleagues to increase their activity levels.

Our training offers the following:

  • An introduction to Greater Manchester Moving, and national and local strategies for workplace wellbeing.
  • Understanding your colleagues. We know not all your employees will be keen to get involved in activity. Together, we’ll look at how we can address this.
  • Benefits of an active workplace: why should you promote an active workplace? What are the benefits for employers and employees?
  • Signposting best practice active workplaces across Greater Manchester, as well as other local and national support networks. We’ll introduce you to partners who can help with overall healthy workplaces and active travel solutions.
  • What next for your workplaces: what are the active workplace tips and takeaways? What are your next steps?

Encouraging people to move more is our main focus.

Quote:

“Physical inactivity is an issue across the GM region, and can have negative impacts on physical and mental health. We’re committed to improving the wellbeing of our staff, and the active champions workshop was a great way to achieve this. All physical activity counts from taking the stairs rather than the lift, to a quick lunchtime walk. We’re already starting to see positive changes in our sites”.
