Move for charity – Exercise for the benefit of others
Data Respons Solutions is a health aware and health promoting company that encourages and enables exercise and physical activity for all employees whether it be at or outside the workplace.
Regular exercise is beneficial for both physical and mental health and we have, for many years now, worked with well renowned former professional cyclist Mads Kaggestad and Avantas Active. Through the Avantas Active app we register individual and team efforts. Low threshold exercise – such as walking – is the most commonly registered activity. We also have an active company sports team and encourage participation in miscellaneous local runs, relay races, bike & ski races.
We take our SHE targets seriously, and our goal is 85 % in physical activity participation and a sick leave of max 2.5 %. After 14 years of systematically following up, promoting and encouraging exercise, we decided to up the ante and established Move for Charity, a project where we exercise for something greater than ourselves and for the benefit of others. For every hour our employees exercise, we make a donation to a charity of their choice.
For 2019 The Children’s Cancer Society was chosen and together we have raised NOK 34 600.
