Asda at Fosse Park has won an award for encouraging their staff to lead healthy lifestyles.
Employees at the superstore were presented with the Leicestershire and Rutland Health and Wellbeing award by Councillor Barry Garner, chairman of Blaby District Council.
The certificate is given to businesses that promote staff wellbeing by offering healthy food options at work, advice and help on quitting smoking and access to physical activities.
Nilou Abdool, health co-ordinator at the store said:
“We have worked really hard to make sure our colleagues work in an environment which promotes healthy lifestyle choices. It is important to us that everyone who works here can lead a healthy life both in and out of work.”
The award is supported by all local authorities in Leicestershire and has previously been given to major companies such as Centrica at Grove Park and Nisan in Harborough.
Victoria Smith, Blaby District Council’s health Improvement officer said:
“We have a strong support team to help businesses achieve this standard that consists of dietetic, food safety and physical activity co-ordinators.”
