Darke & Taylor National Three Peaks

“Darke & Taylor have been working closely with Project Active for over a year now and the results have been really impressive.  All our employees are valued members of the team and we are very conscious of the hard work and effort they put in day in, day out. We like to provide support where we can that contributes to their health, fitness and general sense of wellbeing and the decision to engage Ben from Project Active has really paid dividends. We started with weekly spinning sessions in the company car park, but have since undertaken a whole range of activities including combat fitness, circuits, mountain biking and even a 12 hour “spinathon”. A number of staff have benefited hugely from the boost in their fitness, losing weight and gaining more energy, while the company has been able to evidence its commitment to staff wellbeing.

Most impressive of all was this year’s National 3 Peaks Challenge that a team, representing 10% of the employees of the company, successfully completed.  Organised by Project Active this tough challenge was a real achievement for those who took part and furthermore raised over £10,000 for charity. The team spirit fostered and overall positive impact this generated for Darke & Taylor has been really impressive.

Ben from Project Active makes the process of supporting staff wellbeing easy, his approach is inclusive, good humoured and works for people of all abilities. We look forward to continuing the positive relationship with Project Active and benefiting staff health, productivity and motivation.”
