The business world is ever-changing, and right now, employees are working more hours, more often. In fact, in many countries, workers spend approximately 50% or more of their waking hours at work—sitting more and moving less—contributing to the rise in global physical inactivity and obesity rates.
Fortunately, the popularity of workplace wellness programs and initiatives is growing, and this trend will continue to gain momentum as more companies recognize the physical and mental benefits of exercise, which result in higher employee productivity.
That’s where health clubs come in. A growing number of facilities are building relationships with corporate clients to develop programs aimed at helping their employees establish and maintain a healthy lifestyle, while building a fulfilling career. This strategy is a win/win for clubs—in addition to forging business relationships, they’re improving the health of the community.
