Its time to take a stand
In light of new research performed at the University of Edinburgh, it seems office based employees are spending more time sitting down. In fact it turns out we could be spending more time seated then pensioners! Men are the worst culprits spending an average of 7 hours and 45 minutes seated at work alone.
The health risks associated with spending so much time in a seated position are a cause for concern, its being dubbed by health practitioners as ‘the new smoking’ with links to type 2 diabetes, obesity and even cardiovascular disease. Encourage your employees to move more, have walking or standing meetings and encourage employees to get out of their chairs at least once every hour.
