The benefits of physical activity have been well documented in studies spanning a century or more. As a result, physical activity has become a cornerstone of disease prevention and health promotion efforts. Helping employees to be more physically active can not only improve their physical and mental health, but can also have benefits for businesses such as reduced sickness absence and enhanced productivity and better image.
In this moment ENWHP is part of the ‘Fit Work’ Project which is an 18 month initiative (January 2017 to June 2018) co-funded by the Erasmus + Program of the European Union and a partnership of organisations – The Instituto de Biomecánica de Valencia, Universidade de Coimbra, The Technische Universitate Eindhoven, The European Network for Workplace Health Promotion, KOMAG and the Romtens Fundation.
As for previous ENWHP projects we are looking for good practices concerning this time physical activity programmes at work as practical evidence for guiding workplace interventions.
If you are doing such programmes in your organization ENWHP NEEDS YOUR HELP!
We will be very grateful if you consider participating in the “Fit Work” survey on workplace physical activity programmes. The survey is a major element of the ‘Fit Work’ Project. Your help, in completing a questionnaire, would be hugely beneficial to the project as we seek to capture existing good practice from a variety of organisations across Europe. The information obtained from the questionnaires will be used in the development of a guide on how to promote physical activity through the workplace.
If you are able to complete a questionnaire, and are able to do so by the end of Tuesday 6th June, that would be fantastic! Huge thanks from the project team.
