StepJockey is excited to announce our first ever webinar. This will be the first in a series exploring trends within workplace wellness, anti-sedentary behaviour and active buildings.
The first in the series is titled ‘Driving Health within the built environment’ an exploration of how building design can drive health in the workplace.
Find out more about what our very own Laura Thomas and guest speaker Dr. Vivek Muthu will be discussing below
The re-imagining of the built environment is increasingly being recognised as being a driver to sustainable employee health outcomes.
With the growing popularity of the WELL and FitWel standards, it’s clear that the wellbeing of a building is becoming a market differentiator that can attract higher rental yields and meet the developing needs of health conscious tenants and individuals.
To help those involved with managing property understand the health implications in more detail and take action to innovate their property, on the 12th July @ 12:30 PM, StepJockey will be hosting a unique webinar with Dr. Vivek Muthu.
This one-off 30 minute discussion will cover:
- Why the built environment needs to play an active role in managing the ticking time bomb of sedentary behaviour
- How buildings can play a part in guiding lifestyle choices that prevent chronic diseases
- What are the options to turn a space into an active environment and encourage more vigorous movement during the working day
