The Big Devon March 2017

If someone said to you that you could achieve up to 40% reduction in absenteeism and get eight times more focus from your staff you’d be interested wouldn’t you? If you were also told that this could all be achieved for free, you’d definitely be reading on. Now add to the mix the fact that what is undeniably good for your business is also good for your staff then it surely has to be a no brainer.

The Big Devon March is a Devon-wide walking campaign being delivered by Active Devon. It’s designed to help employers to take their first steps to getting everyone in their office more active in simple, achievable and free ways.
