active workforce

We work with local businesses across FOD to encourage employees to lead a more active lifestyle. We also offer a range of placement & volunteering opportunities.

Businesses are being asked to do more in terms of supporting their workforces to be healthier. From regular breaks and supporting employees to take part in sport and physical activity. Businesses face rising costs in terms of ill health and absenteeism at work, with the current cost to the UK economy around £15 billion per year.

We want to get all people more active, including those who find their working life in FOD a reason for not being as active as they may want. As ‘sitting is the new smoking’, we want to work with more local businesses to find out what their employees would love to do with us to get more active around their job. We offer a discounted corporate membership and are exploring how we can support our local workforces to look after their health and well-being.

Our Active Communities Team in FOD also works with the University of Gloucestershire and Hartpury College to provide opportunities for students to volunteer with our teams.
