Helping people move more can help a business’ bottom line.
Workplaces that encourage their people to sit less and move more can enjoy:
We know chronic diseases associated with sitting too much have well-documented negative economic impacts, and we know sitting less improves health outcomes.
We know healthier people make healthier workers, and healthier workers are generally more productive workers. That's good for a business' bottom line.
So encouraging your people to sit less and move more gives great bang for your buck as it’s one of the lowest cost ways to better health – after all, walking is free!
Australia's VicHealth has released several reports on workplace wellbeing. These reports are available for download at VicHealth's website and include a report into the effects of prolonged sitting at work, and how to reduce it.
