Toshiba wins £30,000 prize to transform smoking room into staff gym

Electronics manufacturer Toshiba has won a £30,000 prize to transform its smoking room into a gym.

This week, staff will arrive at the company’s head office in Weybridge to a smoke-free environment, and are looking forward to making the most of the new facilities.

Judges at consultancy Nuffield Proactive Health felt that Toshiba had demonstrated a real commitment to the health and wellbeing of its employees and was a worthy winner.

Susan Stevens, head of HR at Toshiba, said: “Smoking has no place in the modern workplace and if it can be replaced with something positive, then so much the better.”
