'Walking for Health' Walk Leader Training

17 Oct 2018
  • 10.00 - 16.00
  • Helston
We all know the importance of exercise in our daily lives which also includes work, where we should take every opportunity to leave our workstations a few times each hour to help our bodies recover from the fatigue of sedentary working.  Many of you may take a brief walk in your lunchtimes and as a result  feel refreshed and reinvigorated to take on the remainder of the day raising alertness and concentration levels as a direct result which is good for productivity too.  So you can have one or two designated trained walk leaders to invent safe routes around the vicinity of your workplace and support others to discover the benefits of a brief lunchtime walk. Tip: Fitbit users could add up to 2000 more steps on their daily total.

There is a maximum of only twelve spaces on a first come basis, so please email graham.hicks@cornwall.gov.uk to reserve your free place.  Please note, free parking is provided along with free refreshments however; lunch is not provided.
Dame Carol Black,

"It is fantastic to see Cornwall and Isles of Scilly championing the health and work agenda and I look forward to seeing the Workplace Award act as a catalyst for further change in the county. Good health is good business and I encourage all employers that are serious about the agenda to apply for this confirmation of best practice." Dame Carol Black, National Director for Health and Work.

Annually the average sickness absence is 3.5% (8 days per employee) and the average cost of absence per employee is estimated at £666.  If you employ 100 people sickness absence is costing your business £66,000 each year.  (CIPD Employee Absence, July 2008).
