A health and fitness programme in Travis Perkins’ warehouses is giving workers more energy, as well as improving their agility and mental wellbeing
It’s not often you see middle-aged men in work gear doing the plank at the start of a shift in a warehouse. But that’s what you’ll find in the supply chain facilities of building materials supplier Travis Perkins, as part of a health programme for workers.
The strengthening exercises are just part of Thrive, a tailored programme created by corporate health and wellbeing provider Let’s Get Healthy, and coordinated through Travis Perkins’ health and safety department. “We felt it was important we support our colleagues to build resilience at home and at work,” says Dave Mason, director of health and safety. “Thrive supports our H&S strategy.”
