Scotland's new Way To Work

Posted on in Business News , Cycles News

Female cyclist in parkThe advantages of an active workforce have been researched in depth by a multitude of companies and is often highly recommended; benefits to the employee include reducing stress levels, improving sleeping patterns as well as health benefits, while benefits to employers include fewer sick days being taken and higher levels of productivity.

Way To Work has been introduced in Scotland as a one-stop-shop for funding, training, support, awards, challenges competitions and travel planning opportunities from across the country in one place. It's aim is to support staff and encourage them to travel by foot, bike, public transport or car share. It is primarily an online tool which will take you to a provider's website for each of the services listed, giving you the advantage of having all the sign posts in one place!

The site also features sustainable travel updates making it easier for workplaces to create greener and long-term changes to their organisation, which will improve the health and wellbeing of their workforce.

The Way To Work site is a simple way for businesses to show their appreciation for their employees and to help create positive, lasting changes to your workplace. From demonstrating corporate social responsibility to improving staff wellbeing, promoting active and sustainable travel in the workplace is a good return on investment for the employer and its workforce. The website is currently welcoming feedback as they are continuing to develop; as the initiative grows in popularity we hope to see it expand to other parts of the UK and potentially even on a global scale.
