A new, free website aims to encourage workplaces to become more active by competing against each other.

The new Workplace Challenge website enables people to log all of their physical activity, whether it's walking or cycling to work through to taking part in sport.

Logged activities will be converted to points to enable workplaces to track their progress against national and local leader boards. People will also be able to see a variety of stats including distance travelled, calories burned and CO2 saved.

The new website will run in parallel with activities happening on the ground, including challenges, programmes and competitions, designed to motivate and inspire workplaces across the country.

Sport England has supported the launch of the service via a £500,000 grant through its Get Healthy, Get Into Sport initiative and the website is also supported by the British Heart Foundation's Health at Work programme.

Local Country Sports Partnerships will manage the platform and will ensure there are challenges, activities and competitions available offline to encourage people to stay active.

Mike Diaper, director of community sport at Sport England said: "Influencing work places and getting employees to get active together is key in helping change peoples' attitudes towards sport and will help them develop a lasting sporting habit. I would encourage everybody to sign up to this challenge and get active in 2014."

The website can be found at www.workplacechallenge.org.uk.
