This January the team at PeopleScout Bristol have been making lots of effort to be more healthy. Aided by a win a Fitbit competition we have all gone step crazy - getting off the bus a few stops earlier or taking the stairs. We really have all been moving more and learning about the benefits of being healthy.
It can seem a little condescending for employers to be pushing these messages to employees, but we really believe this is a win/win. It’s been a great engagement tool for us and the research shows many business benefits.
I hope we all keep it up... it’s probably very tough to maintain the January health kicks beyond..... January!?!?
Our data demonstrates a clear relationship – employees who make healthier lifestyle choices benefit from an additional 25 days of productive time each year compared to the least healthy employees, and also exhibit higher levels of work engagement and lower levels of stress
