The Independent surveyed 2000 office workers from the UK during the summer of 2018 and discovered that on average an office worker will spend almost 1,700 hours a year in front of their screen and spend around six and a half hours sitting at their desk Monday to Friday. This inactivity is no good for health and certainly no good for morale or productivity.
To kickstart a healthy workforce many corporate agendas now include health and wellbeing packages to encourage active lifestyles; these wellness initiatives can include:
- Discounts for local gyms
- Walking groups – just 30 minutes spent walking around a business park during a lunch break can make a big difference
- Group yoga sessions for mindfulness in the workplace
- Collaborations with other corporate wellbeing providers to bring an array of interesting schemes
- Healthy lunchtime options to make the workforce more resilient to illness and injury
So, with all this support available at an employee’s fingertips why are so many not taking their employer up on these initiatives? It’s probably got something to do with the ‘I’ll start on Monday’ attitude. But what if employees could see their future selves?
Reverse engineering definition [verb]. To examine the construction or composition of an object in order to recreate or improve it.
Reverse engineering can hold the key to boost the numbers of individuals actively taking part in their organisation’s activities. The Change My Face age progression software when used alongside a wellness strategy will allow employees to see what their future holds for them if they don’t take action now to improve their health. And if they don’t like what they see, they are likely to take positive steps to reverse the effects.
