Why should workplaces be promoting active and sustainable travel?
Fostering a healthier workplace culture benefits both employees and organisations as a whole.
Research has shown that having more active employees leads to reduced absences, increased productivity, lower turnover and higher morale.
Even small changes, such as encouraging people to swap short journeys made by car or public transport with walking or cycling can make a huge difference, helping to save organisations money, and resulting in happier employees.
And, as well as being great for existing employees, valuing staff’s health and wellbeing results in a healthier, content, engaged and highly motivated workforce which, in turn, makes organisations more attractive to potential new recruits.
Promoting active and sustainable travel in the workplace is a good return on investment for the employer and its workforce.
