Supporting organisations to promote and encourage good employee health and wellbeing will drive economic growth through increased productivity, reduced absenteeism and potentially making huge savings to the current estimated £265.4 million cost sick leave brings to the LLR economy.
In 2016, 18 workplaces descended on Saffron Lane Athletics Stadium to celebrate the success of the Rio De Janeiro Olympic Games. The three hour tournament saw track and field events combine with more traditional sports such as handball. Friends and colleagues joined together, with teams of eight all getting the opportunity to have a go at activities they may not have tried before.
The Workplace Olympics is open to businesses/workplaces of any size and type in Leicestershire, Leicester, and Rutland. It is a great opportunity to socialise with your colleagues outside of work, try new sports and have the chance to be crowned the Workplace Olympic Champions.
Our Workplace Olympics will return in the summer of 2019! Keep an eye on the website and sign-up to the Wellbeing@Work newsletter to ensure you don't miss out.

In 2015, a bespoke Festive Business Games was organised jointly by the Active Travel Team at Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council and Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport. The teams competed against each other in Volleyball, Dodgeball and Golf Competitions before battling it out in the individual challenge zone for the individual awards, all whilst in some very festive fancy dress!
