Our latest Workplace Challenge is kicking off on the 1st of January 2016 and runs until the end of February 2016. In short, it’s a challenge to employers to get their employees active during those two months after Christmas. Research is increasingly showing that healthier workplaces are healthier (less absences) and more productive.
It’s completely free for companies and individuals to sign up and use. It’s an activity log where people gain points for the different physical activity they do.
Some of the companies in Sussex we’ve worked with have used it to challenge clients, neighbours in their office blocks and within different departments as a bit of fun. It can also just be used for individuals to track their own physical activity/fitness.
It’d be great to see some or all of the companies on Burgess Hill Business Park getting involved! It could be something fun to offer as part of your membership, especially as it’s completely free. There will also be some certificates and prizes for the most active businesses too! Feel free to sign up and have a look around – https://www.workplacechallenge.org.uk/activesussex/new-year-new-business

"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
