Health and well-being
Hosting the Games in 2012 is the single biggest opportunity to inspire greater participation in UK sport. Business can play an enormous part in promoting the benefits of exercise and a healthy lifestyle and inspiring a new generation to take up sport.
It is increasingly recognised that the work environment influences employee health.
This, in turn, influences productivity and, ultimately, a business's bottom line. Increased job satisfaction, improved morale, reduced injuries and resulting absence and increased productivity are just some of the benefits of having a healthy work environment and adopting a healthy attitude. Promoting health in your workplace doesn't have to be complicated, expensive or time-consuming. Any organisation, large or small, can make plans to promote healthy living.
