Staying active is the single most important step that employees can take to maintain and improve their health. With employees at work an average of 50% of their waking hours, they rarely have time or energy for recreational activity. Even more concerning, new research suggests it is equally important to reduce sitting time as it is to engage in prolonged bouts of physical activity. Creating a work environment that supports physical activity from both perspectives can improve health, job performance and work relationships.
