In today's fast-paced world, maintaining a healthy lifestyle can be challenging, especially with long work hours and sedentary routines. Creating an environment for your team to reenergise and reset has been proven to greatly improve employee wellbeing and overall productivity.
This is where we begin to see the benefits of an onsite workplace gym. We explore the top 5 benefits our clients have noticed in their teams since introducing an onsite gym in their workplace.
1. Convenience and Efficiency
Workplace gyms save employees time and effort by removing the need for a separate journey to the gym, laying the foundation for healthy habits and a solid exercise routine.
2. Improved Physical Health
With most office jobs falling under the bracket of desk-based and sedentary roles, introducing a workplace gym encourages regular movement, leading to better physical health, including weight management and reduced risk of chronic diseases.
3. Enhanced Mental Wellbeing
Exercise releases endorphins, which reduce stress and anxiety. By offering a space for your team to exercise, employers contribute to a positive work environment and happier, more resilient employees.
4. Increased Productivity and Working Relationships
Regular exercise enhances cognitive function, memory, and concentration, ultimately boosting productivity by helping employees return to work with renewed focus and energy. Workplace gyms encourage social interaction between colleagues away from the desk, promoting a more cohesive working relationship.
5. Employee Retention and Attraction
Research shows companies that prioritise employee wellbeing attract and retain top talent. A workplace gym shows that your company cares about its employees' physical and mental wellbeing.
