The Glasgow Climbing Centre achieves healthy workplace status

he Glasgow Climbing Centre, based in Ibrox, has been commended for demonstrating its commitment to the health and wellbeing of its employees by receiving a Simplyhealth Healthy Workplace award.

Provided by healthcare provider Simplyhealth, the Healthy Workplace awards recognise the contribution that UK organisations, in both the private and public sector, make to the welfare of employees. Winners of the award provide employees with a range of initiatives and benefits that help to keep their workforce motivated and healthy.

As a company running a sporting venue, it's great to be recognised by this award for the support we offer our staff to keep active, both at our Climbing Wall, and through our cycling to work facilities. Our use of the Ride to Work scheme has brought more staff to work on bikes, and less in cars, even with Glasgow's notorious weather!
Rob Watts, Centre Manager at The Glasgow Climbing Centre
We run this award scheme because we want to recognise and encourage companies to care about the health of their people. We believe that companies can make a positive contribution to the health of our nation. Congratulations to The Glasgow Climbing Centre on achieving Simplyhealth Healthy Workplace status and demonstrating that the health and wellbeing of its employees is fundamental.
Howard Hughes from Simplyhealth
