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

"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."
"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
"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."
"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
