#OurteamCAN

We have teamed up with Cornwall Can!

We are looking for workplace teams to take part in our very first #OurteamCAN challenge running between 4th February and 3rd May 2019.

The challenge is to create a team and lose weight, get fitter and healthier together. The reason for this is simple, losing weight on your own is hard and research shows you're more likely to stick to a plan of action with people around you.

We also know we spend the largest proportion of time within the workplace. It is a key factor in many of our lives and can play a key role in contributing to the health and well-being of employees and in turn the health of an organisation. We believe that tackling health at work, should lead to a healthier, happier and ultimately more productive workforce!

This is also a great opportunity as an employer to build morale and teamwork into your community.

How does it work?  You need to find yourself a team! Ideally we would like no more than ten people per team. You can be from any setting, whether it be a bakery, fishing boat or office. If there is a big workforce you can enter as many teams as you wish!

Register your team by clicking here 

(You only need one log in per team - just let us know how many members are in your team and the name of the team via cornwallcan@gmail.com.)

 

After registering record your initial overall weight as a group and over the course of 12 weeks motivate and encourage one another to making positive lifestyle changes.

You can also share your teams progress on social media using the hashtag #CornwallCAN and #behealthyatwork

 “We have learned so much through the Cornwall Workplace Health Award Programme already, and are keen that we pass this learning on to our staff.  With many organisations already represented, we were surprised we haven’t got involved sooner as it’s so aligned to our overall ‘Wellbeing Ambition’ that working for the Environment Agency will improve health and wellbeing”

Steve Marks, Environment Agency

“I would like to take this opportunity to praise the work of the Health Promotion Service and the framework in place for the Workplace Health Award, which has significantly changed the focus and the culture of our Company, especially in relation to attitudes toward health and wellbeing and the concept of a healthy workplace being embedded as the norm”
