LONDON OLYMPICS: Getting fit for the Games

10 February 2012  

Catherine Yallop examines the challenges for employers raised by the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games

This summer, nine million Olympic Games spectators, two million Paralympic Games spectators and almost 300,000 athletes and their supporters, officials and media personnel will descend on Central London. The Games represent an opportunity to watch sport of the highest calibre and to celebrate national culture. However, one cannot escape the fact that the UK’s hosting of the Games will have a significant impact upon the nation’s businesses, particularly those based in London – and not necessarily a positive one. While the Games are some months off, employers should be asking themselves now whether they will be affected, and if so, what they should do to prepare.
