Tips for Offering a Healthy Workplace for Employees
According to CDC “Companies that support workplace health have a greater percentage of employees at work every day.” As working individuals, spending hours sitting at our desks in front of our computer screens with limited mobility takes its toll on our health, eventually leading to low productivity.
Jon Abt, Co-President of Abt Electronics – largest independent, single-store retailer of electronics and appliances in the country, knows how important it is to keep 1,200 expert staff members healthy.
To provide a healthy workplace for employees, Abt campus in Glenview, IL houses an employee gym equipped with a basketball court, racquetball court, professional cardio and weight training machines, locker room, showers and a steam room.To further encourage employees to be active and also as a part of the store’s green initiatives, Abt also provides bikes for the employees who’d like to get out of the store for lunch.
Jon advises moving around the office, “Get up and walk around – your employees will appreciate it and so will your body.”
For those who are dedicated to working out during work hours, Jon recommends the InMovement Treadmill Desk by Life Fitness, which is currently on display in the Abt store Atrium. Check out how an Abt employee is giving it a try: https://instagram.com/p/8LtOSdOWL6/.
