Are you part of the 'pop out eat in' culture, which involves picking up lunch and then heading straight back to your desk to eat it?
Do you often find yourself loosing concentration far more easily in the afternoon?
Or do you get home, after doing no exercise during the day, and find yourself too tired to train in the evening?
If the answer is yes to any, OR ALL of the above questions, I have a suggestion for you... join a lunch time exercise club.
247Moneybox, a leading provider of payday loans, have implemented an employee driven work & exercise balance plan that is boosting the morale of its London based staff.
On Monday, Wednesday and Friday's many employees switch their suits and shoes for their vests and trainers. Staff spend their lunch hour exercising in a way they choose, with many opting for cycling and walking. Other 247Moneybox employees participate in lunch time running, with a small group completing the Brighton half marathon last weekend.
At work we are far more likely to feel stressed or anxious. By exercising 3 times a week you will increases your ability to cope with everyday minor irritations and stresses. Endorphins are realised during exercise which provide a sense of elation and often increase patience and ambition.
247Moneybox, a Wonga rival, has also found that exercise ultimately helps staff get more done by boosting energy levels and the ability to concentrate.
Speaking about the affect of the introduction of the running club, COO Mark Hannay said, “We have noticed employees are feeling significantly more alert in the afternoon. Our call centre operatives which are part of the club have increased productivity by 5% in comparison to those which aren't.”
The results of the exercise survey conducted at 247Moneybox revealed that 75% of workers reported better time management and interpersonal communication skills on days that they exercised during work hours. The survey also indicated that 45% of the exercising workers felt more motivated.
Interestingly, the results also showed that 247Moneybox workers benefit when their bosses exercise, as the bosses are less stressed. Thankfully for the staff at 247Moneybox, their COO Mark Hannay cycles to work everyday....
