Businesses are being urged to encourage their workers to take part in physical activity in a bid to combat obesity.

Lincolnshire Sport has launched the Lincolnshire Workplace Challenge calling on business leaders to take action, following a study by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development revealing that only 28 per cent of employees receive advice from their employers on health and wellbeing issues.

Workplace Challenge provides workers with the opportunity to use a free online activity logger to keep track of all their physical activity and active travel.

It also encourages workplaces to set up sport days or encourage walking.
