Peter Duffy Limited is proud to support with the 10,000 steps challenge.
On 29th April, Get Britain Standing asked the nation to encourage improved office wellbeing and productivity by asking companies to take a stand and sign up to an active challenge.
‘Get Britain Standing is a campaign to grow awareness and education of the dangers of sedentary working and prolonged sitting time. Their goal is to draw public attention to the significant increase in health risks (i.e. cardiovascular disease, diabetes (type 2) and cancer) caused by excessive and prolonged sitting. It has also been associated with obesity and weight gain, a key risk factor for coronary heart disease.’
Peter Duffy Limited signed up colleagues to take part in the 10,000 steps challenge to encourage staff to walk 10,000 steps each in groups or individually. Staff members were issued with pedometers or suggested mobile applications that could track their steps in the hopes to encourage more movement during the working day and raise awareness of the importance and health benefits of regular step movement throughout the day.
