Liverpool Active Workplaces returns for 2021!


MSP are proud to be supporting the Physical Activity and Sport Development Service at Liverpool City Council once again, as we work with them and NHS Liverpool CCG to bring the benefits of the FREE-to access Liverpool Active Workplaces initiative back to the city.

Evidence shows that an active workforce improves business performance:

  • 27% fewer sick days are taken by staff who are physically active
  • 91% Liverpool organisations reported improved staff communication and morale when taking part in the previous Liverpool Active Workplaces programme
  • Having an active workforce reduces staff turnover and improves Corporate Social Responsibility

That’s why Liverpool Active Workplaces has been designed to help get your workforce more physically active. If your business is based in Liverpool then you can get more information and register to be involved here.

Last time the initiative was made available to workplaces in Liverpool the feedback from employers was absolutely incredible:

  • “It’s been really fantastic; we’ve had people from different departments mixing for the first time. This programme has helped to provide a bit more structure and purpose, which has helped keep up interest and momentum. It has made a massive difference to the organisation, and has been appreciated by senior managers and employees alike”
  • “The whole programme is a great initiative not only for our own business but the wider Merseyside community”
  • “We have been grateful to the support provided through the Liverpool Active Workplaces programme – this has helped us to further promote physical activity and staff health & wellbeing through the organisation.”

Although we’re in unprecedented times and in economic uncertainty with the impact of Covid-19, the health and wellbeing of employees is an even greater priority for employers.  We recently surveyed businesses in Liverpool, with 91% reporting that staff health & wellbeing has reduced as a result of Covid-19, and 85% said that staff don’t feel as connected to each other. 

As we move through the different phases of the lockdown and easing of restrictions, there is a real opportunity for businesses and employees to start to adopt new behaviours that could result in better productivity, healthier staff and a greener environment.

Liverpool Active Workplaces is here to support your organisation, and by signing up your organisation will receive a FREE package of support that includes:

  • Resources, activity challenges and group activities once lockdown restrictions ease, for employees to help encourage them to be more active, and more active whilst working from home
  • Workshops for managers about how to improve staff health & wellbeing, and peer support training for colleagues
  • Workplace Toolkit – a practical guide to implementing workplace activity initiatives and signposting to sources of support
  • Access to the Liverpool Active Workplace Conference, learning events and further staff consultation support

Becoming an active workplace is quick and simple – join in with the growing network of organisations across Liverpool who have signed up to the initiative, supporting Liverpool to become the most active core city in England.
