active workforce

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 Worcester 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 workplace physical activity opportunities, corporate memberships and staff health and wellbeing day support.

Our Active Communities Team in Worcester also work with the Heart of Worcestershire College and University of Worcester to provide opportunities to volunteer with our teams. Find out current volunteer and placement opportunities below...
