Creating an active workplace and improving workplace wellbeing

On average British people sit for 8.9 hours a day (for office workers this is 10 hours) with almost 70% of sitting taking place at work. Improve your workplace wellbeing by encouraging your workforce to beak up sedentary time and get moving throughout their working day.

You can support a more active workforce through:

  1. Listening to your workforce
  2. Make time for movement
  3. Create an active environment

Depending on the nature of your organisation you could:

  • Encouraging Active Travel – make it easy or incentivise people to commute on foot or by bike; if not all of the way then for the final leg of their journey
  • Providing access to a ‘cycle to work’ scheme to make owning a bike more affordable
  • Provide standing up desks and balance balls to sit on
  • Encourage active meetings – walk while you talk
  • Create competitions or challenges using apps, Strava etc. to encourage more movement during the day
