The ICO renews their commitment to an active workforce

This year has been a challenging one for many organisations across the country, the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has remained committed to developing and improving ways to enhance the health, wellbeing and quality of life of their staff throughout.

Taking the Active Workplace Pledge and working in partnership with Active Cheshire the ICO has fully utilised the range of support available both face to face and virtually, encouraging colleagues to be physically active, move more and reduce sedentary behaviour throughout the working day. Something they recognise, with many colleagues working from home is more important than ever.

This week the ICO have renewed their commitment to the health and wellbeing of colleagues and encouraging physical activity, renewing their support from Active Cheshire by signing up to the new Silver Active Workplace Pledge. By taking a flexible approach in an ever changing environment, both organisations will work together to best support colleagues over the next year.

Emma Titley, the ICO’s Head of Workforce Development and Planning said: “We have been taking effective steps to protect staff within their workplace environment during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, working closely with Active Cheshire to make a real difference. We are committed to enriching the health, wellbeing and quality of life amongst our staff through our Active Workplace Pledge. Especially during these uncertain times.

Roger Elliott, Active Cheshire’s Active Workplace Lead said “We are delighted to be continuing to support the ICO through the Active Workplace Pledge. The ICO really do put employee health and wellbeing front and centre and this dedication has been evident during the recent challenging times. We look forward to working together, further strengthening our partnership and working for employees to enjoy the benefits of physical activity”
