Walk Derbyshire and Healthy Workplaces Derbyshire hosted an ‘Introduction to Netwalking’ session as part of the Chesterfield Walking Festival.

The circular walk on Tuesday 14 May started at The Hub @ Low Pavement in Chesterfield with the route taking in Queen’s Park and part of the Chesterfield Art Trail.

Those attending were given details of the ‘Netwalking Toolkit’, which encourages workplaces to set up their own walking meetings and walking networking opportunities. Conversation topics also included keeping active and moving more as part of the working day.

Evidence shows that where workplaces invest in health and wellbeing, employees feel valued, productivity increases, sickness absence is reduced, and retention improves.
