Exciting news… we’ve been selected by ukactive as the UK nomination for the #BeActive Workplace Award for 2017. It’s part of the European Week of Sport taking place this September.
The #BeActive Workplace Award is one of three categories for the 2017 European Week of Sport Awards (EWoS). The #BeActive Workplace award celebrates those who most promote EWoS objectives to enhance participation in physical activity in the workplace and encourage employees to #BeActive.
Nominations have been submitted from EWoS partners across Europe and ukactive, the UK’s leading not-for-profit health body for the physical activity sector, selected Exercise in the City for the UK nomination.
We’re delighted to have been nominated by ukactive and we’ll find out if we’ve been selected as one of the finalists in the coming weeks… in the meantime, fingers crossed and watch this space!!
We featured on BBC Radio 4’s report ‘Cake Culture vs Active Workplaces’. Listen to hear our Pilates classes at software company, Pivotal, and what staff have to say about how much they value their weekly classes.
Listen to the full report here… we’re at 2 minutes!
We’ve been bringing lunch break Pilates and Yoga classes to Pivotal for over seven months. Staff tell us how much they enjoy the classes and value the break from their computers.
Every Wednesday Jacqueline encourages women to Tweet her a short description of their start up businesses using #WOW. She picks her three top entries every week and retweets them to her 52,300+ followers. We were chosen as a weekly winner back in July. At the end of the year she reviews all the weekly winners and picks her three favourites. We were one of the three selected for 2015!!
I really like @EITCLondon‘s business model and believe that it has the potential to do very well here in London!
