Red Bull Extra Mile Workplace Awards: Who has the UK’s best run & cycle facilities?
This year, the answer is Meglio! We are honoured and unbelievably proud, to have won Red Bull’s coveted Extra Mile Workplace Award, for the Best Start Up 2018. This achievement demonstrates the passion of our team, our incredible office culture and the amazing environment we have created here at Meglio.
We’re more than just foam rollers and resistance bands…
From stand-up desks and weekly Pilates, to posture checks and an office treadmill, we have it all. In the Summer, all members of staff were given a pair of running shoes and flexi-time was introduced; encouraging employees to take part in sporting activities and achieve their individual goals outside of work. With fresh fruit in the office, early finishes on a Friday and running club at lunchtimes, we’re continually finding new ways to develop our employee well-being and satisfaction.
The majority of our team either, run, walk or cycle into work on a daily basis. We encourage an active start to the day and have created onsite facilities for employees to safely store equipment and refresh after their commute. As a physiotherapy product company, we are more than equipped to help employees recover after their journey to work. Foam rolling or stretching after a long run is a common site in the office throughout the morning and we encourage employees to take time away from their desk to stretch out and relax.
In Italian, Meglio stands for better and we’re devoted to creating a culture that resonates with our brand. We stay true to what we believe in, by creating a workplace and ethos that brings to life our genuine commitment to well-being.
It’s fantastic to be recognised at this stage of our journey and it will only drive us on to further success heading into 2019 and beyond.
We’d like to say a massive thank you to Red Bull for the award and to Beryl, for providing us with some amazing bike lights as prizes!
