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 Hastings 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 corporate memberships to help employers encourage their workers into physical activity and healthy habits.
Our Active Communities Team in Hastings works with Active Hastings and Sussex Coast College to provide opportunities to volunteer with our teams. Find out current volunteer and placement opportunities by getting touch with the Active Communities Officer.
