News: Up for the Workplace Challenge?

Posted on 9th December 2015

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

Testimonials

"Regular, well organised events, excellent updates and information by email along with a warm welcome from the Chair and Coordinator are just some of the positives at BHBPA."

Mike Oliver, Owner
(Mike Oliver Associates)

"“I have belonged to this group since I started my own business, Lea Graham Associates, in 1986. The association has been through several incarnations since then, but its most recent one, BHBPA, is by far the best.

It’s much more than just a networking group, although it is supremely good at that too. BHBPA is inclusive and friendly and acts like a mutual-support society. The events are stimulating, worthwhile and often great fun and I believe most members share this opinion.”"

Susan Fleet, Managing Director
(Lea Graham Associates)

"As the local hospice for the area, it’s great that we receive so much support from the BHBPA. Last year the members raised an amazing £2150 through activities such as Bake Off and the BHBiz Awards. Each well planned members meeting enables good networking opportunities and speakers that are relevant to the present climate and local issues. We are proud to be members of BHBPA."

Wendy Agate, Community Fund Raising Manager
(St Peter & St James Hospice)

"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."
