CSSC encourages public sector employees to get active this January

CSSC Sports & Leisure are working in partnership with CSHR for the fourth year in a row to deliver Active Wellbeing, a weeklong initiative that encourages participants to implement a healthy balanced lifestyle this January.

The Active Wellbeing campaign for 2022 has been designed to encourage healthier habits, increase wellbeing and productivity across Civil Service teams.

Employee wellbeing has never been more important and after a turbulent few years, taking extra time to promote positive health and wellbeing is critical to improve the happiness of your workforce.

Specifically designed for Civil Servants and public sector workers, CSSC is an exclusive not-for-profit membership organisation inspiring over 140,000 members to explore new ways to be active and healthy through everyday savings, offers to get active and things to do.

Starting on Monday 17 January, Active Wellbeing encourages participants to make small positive changes to their working day to improve health, happiness, energy and work-life balance.

Anyone working in the Civil Service or public sector can join in and submit a pledge, you don't need to be a CSSC member to take part.

Just for signing up, as a thank you, you’ll get a free three-month premium membership of Ordnance Survey Maps, making it easy to discover, plan and follow and explores routes in the great outdoors.

If you choose to refer a friend, you’ll be entered into a draw to win a Hello Fresh voucher, worth £45.

For over 100 years, CSSC has supported public sector and Civil Service employees and their families explore new ways to be active while maintaining and developing their physical and mental health.

From helping you reach your fitness goals to maximising your leisure time, CSSC members have access to over 4,200 ways to save.

From fun days out to exclusive deals, members get £300 of free instant benefits and exclusive access to CSSC savings to earn cashback and get amazing discounts at thousands of supermarkets, DIY, sports, fashion, electrical retailers and all your favourite online and high street stores.

At the heart of Active Wellbeing is the pledging platform, which encourages participants to make small positive changes to their working day to improve health, happiness, energy and work-life balance.

Whatever you choose to pledge, make sure to update your progress each day as you’ll be rewarded for collecting badges for each milestone.

For every badge you collect, you’ll be entered into that day’s draw to win some terrific prizes and giveaways, worth over £10,000 in total.

From the latest fitness tech and clothing to experience days and memberships - prizes include Garmin smart watches, worth up to £250 each, £100 Kukri packages and £250 of retail vouchers.
