Active travel for a better workplace
EMPLOYEE & EMPLOYER BENEFITS
The benefits of cycling and walking to the individual are clear, so establishing a workplace culture where active travel is not only enabled but encouraged can offer huge rewards. Incorporating active travel into your business with your workforce but also in your business practices is easier than you may think, and we can support.
During the coronavirus pandemic we saw huge numbers of people take to their bikes or get out walking as part of their daily routine and as Greater Manchester recovers, boosting cycling and walking in the long-term will have a hugely positive impact for our communities and businesses as we Build Back Better. We will see less congestion, better air quality, improvements to our health - the benefits speak for themselves.
While working at the Royal Oldham Hospital, 5 miles away, I decided cycling to work would give me chance to wind down after a difficult day. I loved it & felt much better for getting fresh air & exercise. I’d definitely recommend a bike commute to anyone!
Support and encourage your employees to cycle, and get involved yourself, with these initiatives.
