MSP are hosting their annual Merseyside Business Games event in November, with an evening of fun and inclusive teambuilding activities on offer. Bring a team of colleagues along from your workplace and see the business benefits that physical activity can bring.
The event returns to Greenbank Sports Academy in Liverpool from 6.00pm to 9.00pm on Thursday 2nd November. The evening consists of teams (five to seven people per team) taking part in a variety of exciting beginner-level sports and activities, scoring points for their team in a bid to become the most active organisation in Merseyside! Businesses of all shapes and sizes attend the event, and no previous experience of sport or level of fitness is required for individuals to take part.
Merseyside Business Games is organised by MSP, who promote physical activity and sport in the workplace as part of their ‘Active Workplaces’ programme. There are clear business benefits to having a more active workforce, with research showing that active staff take 27% less sick days than colleagues who are inactive. Investing in workplace physical activity also enhances an organisation’s Corporate Social Responsibility, reduces staff turnover and improves staff morale, teamworking and communication.
Danny Woodworth from MSP said, “This event is a great way for staff to come together to bond with their colleagues and network with other organisations. Attendees from last year told us that they thoroughly enjoyed taking part in a variety of activities, learning top-tips to be more active to improve their health and wellbeing.”
This year’s event, sponsored by Sonex Publishing, is now open for any organisation in Halton, Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton, St Helens or on the Wirral to enter.
