The most important asset of any workplace is the employee. Keeping the employee in top condition within an optimal environment will in turn increase efficiency and productivity. Serotonin, a neurochemical released during exercise, causes a reaction within the body to elevate mood, increase feelings of satiety and lift depression – making a healthy active workplace, a happy workplace too.
Increased physical activity within the workplace has been associated with the following benefits:
– Reduced stress levels
– Increased engagement and morale
– Improved team relationships
– Improved corporate image
– Reduced sickness related absenteeism

International evidence states that workplace health programs can reduce sick leave by up to 30% and increase productivity by up to 52% while organizations that implement health and wellbeing strategies can reduce their employees health risk factors by up to 56% (Worksafe, 2010).
Colleagues that exercise together, stay together. Not only is getting the team together fun, exercise sessions have also been shown to benefit the interaction between staff members through improvements in communication, leadership, trust building, time management and team work.
