Why is workplace wellbeing important?
Being inactive is taking a significant toll on our health and wellbeing – it’s as dangerous to our health as smoking. Workers can spend up to three-quarters of their day sat down, which contributes to a range of preventable health conditions, including the two leading causes of workplace absence: back injuries and stress, depression or anxiety.
In 2016/17, 1.3 million workers suffered from work-related ill-health, which equated to 25.7 million working days lost. This has been estimated to cost £522 per employee, and up to £32 billion per year for UK business.
Helping your staff to be physically active at work can bring a number of benefits to you as an employer and doesn’t have to be difficult. This guidance provides some advice you can put into practice straight away to help your workforce become healthier.
The benefits of physical activity
One in four people are physically inactive despite the fact that regular physical activity has been shown to treat, manage and prevent up to twenty different lifestyle-related conditions, including heart disease, cancers, stroke and diabetes.
Many employees struggle to fit physical activity into their busy working days but being active for just one hour can offset the potential harm of being inactive.
You can take a number of steps to help your employees become more active at work, and save money as a result of a healthier, more productive workforce.
