Active Workplace June 2015:

Businesses from across Tyne & Wear rose to the challenge to prove they’re fit, fast and fun at the Active Workplace Games on 18 June, competing in a dozen sporting challenges including volleyball, golf, tennis, athletics and more.

The organisations taking part in the exciting four hour event included Egger (UK) Ltd, Involve NE, Elanders, Gentoo, Johnson Controls, Virgin Money, Intu Eldon Square, Newcastle Falcons, Primula Ltd, NHS BSA, the Northumbria Probation Trust and Perfect Image.

Taking the crown at the end of the event as Active Workplace Games Champions were Johnson Controls.

Mark Stoker from Johnson Controls said, "The Games event is an opportunity for us to bring different areas of the company together and have a bit of fun. It helps to build the team. We won this event in February and it's great to come back and do it again. We're a very competitive bunch."
