Almost 90% of employees blame their job for being unfit

Employees blame sitting at their desk for being unfit with many thinking their employers should offer more incentives for them to get fit. Almost 70% of staff said they snacked more at work out of boredom and to struggling to find time to exercise.

 
PRLog - Jun. 28, 2012 - Fitness levels decrease as a result of today's office culture.

Alan Price, managing director of Peninsula Ireland said this morning, “Employees should get up and exercise during their lunch hour, or simply choose the stairs over the lift instead of using their job as an excuse for being unfit.”

“Workers are becoming increasing lazy these days, often sat at their desks all day, not required to move at all other than for the occasional trip to the printer or to make a coffee. This sedentary behaviour seems to be having a negative impact on employees’ health and affecting how much they are able to get done in working hours. Many employees admit to feeling as though tasks are completed slower and to a poorer standard than after having recently exercised. Employees need to be on top form when at work and having a sufficient level of fitness is vital in order to boost productivity.”

Mr Price continues, “It’s clear that employers need to do more to create ways for employees to exercise and get fit. From organising weekend walking trips to high impact evening fitness classes, employers need to think outside the box and encourage their workforce to get moving. Not only can this improve efficiency, but from spending time together and bonding, company moral can improve too.”

“The benefits are not purely physical either, exercise has been shown to enhance mental activity and improve brain power too. Exercise can help to de-stress employees and give them an opportunity to mull over problems which may have been weighing on their minds. Often the best ideas can suddenly appear whilst running on the treadmill and your brain has had a chance to process the information. After relieving work stress and releasing healthy exercise endorphins, employers will find their workforce more motivated to face their daily tasks and operate with an efficient frame of mind.”

He concludes “Both employers and their staff are aware of how beneficial exercise can be to enable productivity at work. Bosses must ensure they place enough importance on implementing exercise schemes at work and guarantee employees have the opportunity to keep active in some form or another.”
