Preparing for our first annual charity challenge

Colleagues at Partners& are gathering together to make the most of May volunteer month and commit to a challenge. The aim is to get people together in teams to have some fun, get fit and support our nominated charity, Working Options.  Sponsor us over on our justgiving page.

The challenge has been designed to appeal to all levels of fitness. For the cycling enthusiasts, individuals can cycle 100 miles, a team of two can cycle 50 miles each or a team of four can cycle 25 miles each in a day. Teams across the UK will be gathering on 14 May.

The walking challenge involves individuals walking 100 miles in the month of May. Teams of colleagues are getting together to support each other throughout the month.

Partners& is committed to diversity and inclusion – a key part of which is providing access for young people to learn about the insurance sector and consider it as a viable career option. As such, we have partnered with Working Options in Education, an employability and life skills charity that helps young people to aim high and fulfil their potential.

We’re also partnering with YuLife, its employee benefits, wellbeing, engagement and rewards partner to track activity through the YuLife app.

YuLife allows us to reward our staff for making healthy life choices such as cycling, walking and mindfulness exercises. It also allows our staff to donate their rewards to good causes such as planting trees, providing clean water and removing plastic from the ocean. Here are some of our results from 2022…
