The Workplace challenge is a national programme, funded by Sport England, which aims to engage workplaces in physical activity and sport.
Being inactive is the 4th leading risk factor for global mortality. On average, we spend 60% of our waking hours at work and most of this time is spent sitting. We can help reduce this inactivity by signing up to Kent’s Workplace Challenge.
Activity has many positive effects on work performance, productivity and absenteeism. Activity improves motivation, energy and stress levels. By taking part in Kent’s Workplace Challenge, it shows that your business cares about your employees’ health. The social aspect of the challenge creates FUN in the workplace and increases team spirit…
…AND THE CHALLENGE IS FREE!
Companies and organisations across Kent are invited to take part and everyone is welcome to sign up, no matter how active or inactive they currently are.
It’s easy to sign up to the free online tool! Once you’ve signed up you just need to log your activity. This can be anything from a 10 minute walk, a 30 minute run at lunchtime, a bike ride or exercise class in the evening, gardening at the weekend, through to netball or football training with friends. It doesn’t matter how active you currently are or what sport you currently do, anyone can sign up to the challenge. It’s a great motivational tool and an opportunity to engage with your friends, colleagues and other workplaces. The more activity you do, the more points you get… and points make prizes!
