Kicking those January blues – get healthy at work in 2011


We want workers everywhere to kick the January blues and get healthy at work in the New Year. Thirty per cent admit they eat more unhealthy snacks and treats during the working day and over a third say they're less active at work than at home. 

Joining a scheme like our own Health at Work programme can really help address the balance.  The programme helps organisations everywhere, large and small, to set up their own health club at work, from arranging regular lunchtime walks to organising a company football team.

It can be difficult to find the motivation to get fit and healthy during January when we are faced with cold weather and dark nights. Our survey revealed UK workers tend to exercise less or eat more unhealthily during the working day but this doesn’t have to be the case. Just going for a walk on your lunch break or clubbing together for a regular fruit bowl can make a real difference to your wellbeing.

For employers, the rewards are clear. Encouraging workers to eat healthy and exercise during the working day can improve productivity, reduce staff turnover, and result in fewer sick days. Why not challenge your employees to become a fitter, healthier workforce in 2011?

The programme, generously sponsored by Legal & General, already has more than 800 organisations involved. Employees from bin men to bank tellers are joining the scheme and getting fit together.

You can sign up for free and get all the advice and resources you need to start your own health club at work.
