Staff at a UK gift experience day company have geared up to get active during a Move More September challenge this month.
The team at WonderDays head office in Telford, Shropshire is aiming to increase their activity level by walking, cycling, jogging and swimming throughout September.
With staff wellbeing a core value for the company, any staff member taking part who increases how much they move by at least 50% this month will be gifted a luxury spa experience day to enjoy over the winter.
Managing Director Matt Jones said the entire workforce across all departments had signed up for the challenge.
“That includes me and after two weeks starting every weekday with an Insanity workout before heading into the office, I’m already feeling the benefit,” he said.
“What’s so great about the Move More September challenge is it can be fully tailored for everyone.
“At its easiest, it’s just about moving a bit more by getting up and walking around the office or heading for a short stroll on lunch or a quick bike ride after work, all of which make a difference.
“Other staff have really gone for it and have started hitting the gym classes or jogging several times a week, with a couple of them taking on the Couch to 5K programme.”
Mr Jones added that mental wellbeing was just as important as physical health and something WonderDays considers a priority for its employees.
“The wellbeing of our staff here at WonderDays is one of the most important things for us.
“We’re a national experience day gifts company but we’re also family business that always does the best for our team.
“Regular weekly exercise of any kind that gets you moving is good for your mind as well as your body.
“Ensuring that our team have a good work-life balance, flexible working and the odd lunch treat or chance to enjoy one of our gift experiences for themselves are core values for us at WonderDays.”
