Beyond the office
Additionally to endorsing in-office fitness, we suggest supporting a healthier lifestyle that goes beyond the work environment. Encouraging your team to take part in regular sporting events such as football matches, biking or running, offers a chance for employees to mix outside of the office, and creates a great company culture.
At Oktra we frequently promote cardiovascular and muscle-strengthening exercise events. This month alone we took part in the Standard Charted Great City Race 2017, competed in the Weybridge Community Rowing Regatta, and participated in The Prudential 100 Cycle Ride.
Encouraging fitness in the office and beyond significantly contributes to employees’ mental and physical health. It nurtures a happier, healthier work environment and lifestyle.
Physical and mental health are often closely linked. Exercising increases the release of serotonin, which can regulate our sleeping pattern. It is clear that our minds and bodies are inextricably connected.
