Physical Activity in the Workplace
Some of the benefits of physical activity in the workplace include:
- Better employee health and morale that results in improved job performance and service to clients
- Improved employee health and chance of avoiding health problems that come from being inactive
- Increased self-confidence and sharper mental skills for employees that will improve employees’ abilities to succeed in all areas of their life
Increase Physical Activity in the Workplace
Creating workplace policies and supportive environments can make healthy choices easier. Policy and supportive environment approaches to physical activity are more beneficial than exercise programs because of sustainability, cost effectiveness and accountability.
