Ever thought of creating a workplace running group? If so, run wales is here to help!
We all know that by making small increases in our activity levels we can avoid some of the crucial issues affecting us in today’s sedentary way of living. Incorporating running in the workplace for example, where employees spend an average of 42hrs a week, can only result in one thing; A healthier, happier and more active workforce.
So some of the benefits* of creating such an opportunity to the employer are;
Increase profitability and productivity
Reduce absenteeism costs
Reduce stress levels and improve morale
Develop and improve social interaction
Contribute to compliance with health and safety legislation
Create a positive corporate image to attract and retain high calibre employees.
