If you read our blog in September about the Energize workshop we attended, you will be familiar with our commitment to promoting activity in the workplace. If you missed it, you can read it here.
Dedication to promoting activity
Corporate Social Responsibility was brought into action by the support of Energize Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin. With this, we now benefit from corporate gym membership at various Telford and Wrekin gyms. Since this was implemented, we have all noticed a change in the amount of staff who have made more effort to go to the gym and how it has had a positive impact on their life.
The decision was taken to provide staff with corporate gym membership to show how seriously we take our Corporate Social Responsibility. This has demonstrated our commitment to helping our team be healthier and more active in the workplace.
Since ATS rolled out corporate gym memberships, staff have been enthusiastic about attending the gym and have made time to attend either before work or after. One staff member who has especially taken advantage of the corporate gym membership is Business Account Manager, Millie.
She has surprised herself at just how much she has enjoyed adopting a more active lifestyle; “I’m so pleased with the corporate gym membership that ATS has supplied us with. I’ve been to the gym four times this week with a weight loss of 3.5lbs. I feel better than ever considering I didn’t think it was anything I would ever enjoy.”
Ben Harper, the Senior Partner Manager at Energize is delighted with ATS’s dedication to promoting activity in the workplace; “Being active day to day is really tough. ATS has taken a big step in making being active accessible and more acceptable in their workplace. Millie is a great example of how a positive life change through being active can start with a small step and then grow into a lifelong habit.”
An active future
We are currently working on more ways in which we can continue to promote activity in the workplace, but we are proud of what we have achieved so far. Investing in the activity of your staff is not only a responsible action, it’s also an efficient one.
If your company is looking for ways to become more active in the workplace, we thoroughly recommend Energize.
