What do you mean by physical activity in the workplace?

Physical activity in the workplace means encouraging employees to be physically active to, from or at work.

In terms of being active to and from work, employees can choose active transportation, by maximizing use of active modes and methods of travel wherever possible, such as walking, cycling or in-line skating instead of driving or taking the bus.

While at work, employees should be encouraged to incorporate activity into their day wherever possible, such as having ‘walking meetings’ instead of sitting in a boardroom; taking the stairs instead of the elevator; signing up for a lunchtime fitness class; or choosing to walk documents to another employee instead of relying on an inter-office mail system.
