Since 2011, Healthy Workplaces has been motivating employees around the world to #QuitTheSit. We do this through our highly engaging, corporate wellness initiatives:
Tour de Office and Step Forward. Over the past 12 years, we’ve supported over 159 companies and over 27,000 participants with our programs. Participants have accumulated enough kilometres to do a few laps of the globe, and have raised over $1.4 million for charity in the process. It’s been an incredible journey, and we’re excited to continue bringing people together across the world, to stay active and keep moving.
We seek to raise awareness about the negative health impacts of inactivity during the workday. We encourage people to make better lifestyle choices leading to reduced levels of stress, and depression and improving life satisfaction. Up to 61 precent of employees agree that they have made healthier lifestyle choices directly because of their company’s wellness program.
When we are more active we are more alert, more effective at our work and better able to cope with life in general. So join us in Quitting The Sit in your work day.
