Following the success of a 2016/17 pilot, a new Liverpool Active Workplaces programme has been launched for 2021. This time the scheme is responding to the Covid-19 pandemic, and the negative impact it has had on the ment mental health and physical activity levels of workers.
A package of free support is available now for employers.
Merseyside Sports Partnership (MSP) recently surveyed businesses in Liverpool. 91% reported that staff health and wellbeing has reduced as a result of Covid-19, and 85% said that staff don’t feel as connected to each other.
As we move through the different phases of the lockdown easing, there is a real opportunity for businesses and employees to start to adopt new behaviours that could result in better productivity, healthier staff and a greener environment.
Liverpool Active Workplaces is here to support your organisation, and by signing up you’ll receive a free package of support that includes:
- Resources, staff activity challenges and group activities for employees, to help encourage them to be more active, including whilst working from home
- Workshops for managers about how to improve staff health and wellbeing, and peer support training for colleagues
- Workplace Toolkit – a practical guide to implementing workplace activity initiatives during/after Covid-19 and signposting to sources of support
- Access to the Liverpool Active Workplace Conference, learning events and further staff consultation support
Becoming an active workplace is quick and simple – join in with the growing network of organisations across Liverpool who have signed up to the initiative, supporting Liverpool to become the most active core city in England.
