Co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission, WAC – Active Workplace Certification – is a European initiative, valid over a period of 3 years.
It was launched in 2020 and led by the European Federation for Company Sport (EFCS) with a consortium of 9 partners. It intends to set up, test and launch a certification process in order to value and reward professional organisations implementing physical activity for their employees.
Following an innovative and sectorial approach, we have gathered 27 companies and 42 experts across Europe to co-construct a unique certification, based on existing best practices, standards and recognized expert methods. After several rounds of discussions, auditing and evaluation, our experts and pioneer companies have succeeded in setting up 40 unique criteria to obtain the WAC certification. Finally, 13 companies were certified in October 2022 in Brussels during an award ceremony.
