4 top reasons to encourage health and fitness in the workplace:
- Increased Motivation: Those employees who are healthy and exercise regularly tend to be more energetic, happy and motivated throughout the work day. This increase in energy helps to improve brain function and leads to a better overall performance.
- Reduced absenteeism: Companies and individuals can benefit from being a part of a healthy and active workforce as regular exercise keeps people healthy and less vulnerable to common illnesses which affect their ability to work.
- Minimises Stress Levels: With many workers stuck sitting at their desk 9-5, Monday to Friday, there’s no surprise this can lead to workplace stress and fatigue. Regular exercise is a great way to help employees release their physical and emotional tensions in an active way. Fit employees tend to have lower overall stress levels compared to employees who do not partake in regular exercise.
- Increased Self-Confidence: Employees who foster their health and fitness tend to have a higher level of self-confidence which empowers them to challenge themselves and achieve a greater outcome both within and outside the workplace. These employees also tend to make good leaders, as they are disciplined by nature and do well at leading others.
