the business mile

The Business Mile supports organisations to achieve a happy, healthy workforce through embedding a positive culture of activity, in a way that works for the individual organisation.

How it works

No matter how big or small your business is, The Business Mile can be adopted to encourage employees to be more active each day, by walking a mile. Not only does The Business Mile inspire the workforce to come together to walk the mile, it also reinforces a positive culture of employees making a commitment to walk more miles getting to and from work, as well as in their own time with their family and friends.

As part of the Business Mile, we support businesses to identify a Workplace Champion, who will enjoy all the benefits of being part of our established Ambassador network. We provide training and follow up support for all Business Mile Champions that will lead their workplace Mile, making it a sustainable, employee led resource.

Why The Business Mile?

We want to inspire the workforce to get more active!


We recognise that for many, vigorous physical activity is not obtainable, especially for those that are overweight, suffering with long term health conditions, are inactive, with disabilities or body conscious, and the thought of doing a traditional workout is just not an option.


The Business Mile will support your workforce to become more active, healthier, and happier, by simply engaging your employees to participate in regular walks, whether on their own, or as part of a team. By offering a simple activity that promotes health and wellbeing, you will naturally encourage team building and workplace productivity, which in turn results in the overall reduction of absenteeism.
Employee health is paramount for businesses.
Health-related lost productivity is costing the UK economy an estimated £91 billion, which would reduce significantly with adequate investment in health and wellbeing. Those businesses that invest in looking after their workforce, proactively supporting employee wellbeing initiatives, can see significant return on their investment.
