As Wayne Rooney and the England squad prepare for their first World Cup match in South Africa, leading public services provider Amey has launched a football championship and a quiz to help promote national Men’s Health Week.

Amey, which has 11,000 staff, has already launched a WellBeing programme which raises awareness of the benefits of making healthier lifestyle choices. This includes offering health promotions and awareness campaigns, activity programmes and even weigh-in clubs using its very own Amey 8-week Healthy Eating Plan, developed by nutritionists.

Now Amey has become an official sponsor of the Men’s Health Forum, an independent, authoritative voice for male health - and has launched an on-line health quiz to promote Men’s Health Week.  The company is also launching a football championship.

“We believe that if our people are physically and emotionally resilient, they are more likely to enjoy working for us. This creates a happier working environment, and means they are more able to cope with the ever-changing demands of a large company such as Amey, which helps to deliver better results,” says Mark Bradshaw, Amey’s head of Reward and Policy. “For this reason, Amey has rolled out a comprehensive health and WellBeing programme to help staff achieve their full potential.

“We are proud to support Men’s Health Week. Even now, some men do not prioritise seeing their doctor - sometimes leaving it too late to receive treatment,” adds Mark. “Hopefully, this campaign will break down barriers and encourage more men to follow Amey’s example and invest in their own WellBeing.”

Amey’s football championship is part of the Health Olympics - a series of events taking place over the Summer months, each one promoting a different health theme across the business. Teams from Plymouth to Perthshire will take part in an FA Cup style contest to win trophies and runner-up medals.
