Made to Move
LRS was Made to Move.
Not only do we want to get the nation moving more, we're doing it ourselves with our ambition to be one of the healthiest places to work.
So in June 2017, employees signed up to the Made to Move challenge, and wow, what competitive and truly active employees we have working across the company - from manufacturing and field sales to our office-bound employees.
Every step counted, so it wasn't just fitting in extra walks at lunchtime! There were conference calls in the car park, walking meetings, people walking on the spot at their desks and some people even ditched their cars for the month.
By the end of the month we really proved that we were made to move and - with a little creativity - we can be more active despite our busy lives.
- An amazing 69.6 million total steps- that's nearly 1.5 times around the earth
- 10,000 steps per person, per day on average, which is close to each participant doing 5 miles a day
- The winning team on their own managed a mighty 533,988 steps
