Physical Health

Improving Workplace Health and Mental Wellness can be done in part by improving our physical health. Adults spend a significant portion of our day at work, and for many of us that means being stagnant in front of a computer or sitting in meetings. Our physical fitness sub-committee focuses on improving our ability to be active both in and out of the workplace. We will be providing both information sessions, and opportunities to integrate light to moderate physical activities during normal work hours.

The benefit of these sessions for employees are that they are more likely to feel energetic and motivated, can help cope with stress, and can network; for employers there will be improved productivity, morale, and job satisfaction among your team.
