Growing evidence points towards the fact that maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle can hugely benefit both body and mind. Getting the work-life balance right has never been more important, with many people in the UK spending up to 60% of the waking day in their place of work.
Substantial evidence suggests that physically active workers take 27 percent less sick days, while it is estimated that sickness absence costs UK employers £9 billion per year.
The Active Workforce programme, which has already been adopted by local Aberdeen employers, has been developed using a holistic approach to meet recommendations outlined by leading health professionals in the North East and across the UK.
The programme works towards delivering bespoke packages, highlighting the health benefits that come hand in hand with an active lifestyle, whilst implementing on and off-site activities. This includes subsidised memberships for employees and families, a minimum of two hours of free activity or consultations on site and regular presentations from Sport Aberdeen.
