B2B tech marketing specialist Fox Agency is cycling the length of the UK ahead of Cycle to Work Day, to celebrate its nationwide team and raise money for mental health charity, Mind.
With employees working remotely throughout the UK, as part of the agency’s hybrid working model, Cycle to Work Day on August 5 presents something of a challenge for the Fox Agency team. A rise in remote working has resulted in a decrease in local employees cycling to work, and for team members further afield in London for example, cycling to the agency’s Leeds HQ poses a tough task.
To celebrate the agency welcoming employees based up and down the country and even abroad, Fox Agency has vowed to cycle, not just to work, but to the equivalent distance of the entire length of the country. For this 600-mile mission the agency is hoping for sponsorship and the proceeds will be donated to mental health charity, Mind.
The agency has a huge focus on employee wellbeing and offers weekly online personal training sessions, yoga and meditation courses, art masterclasses and even virtual comedy gigs to support the mental and physical wellbeing of the team. Based on this focus, it seemed fitting that the proceeds from this challenge went towards a cause which supports the wellbeing of others.
On Fox Agency’s Cycle to Work Challenge, Director Al Fox said: “Along with our other wellbeing initiatives, we offer a Cycle to Work scheme. However, when the team spans the length and breadth of the country, there’s only so much use we can make of such a scheme. I’m really proud of the agency for taking on this challenge which is great for team moral and wellbeing, and will also raise money and awareness for a very worthy cause.”
