Willis Towers Watson conducted a study and results highlighted that 70% of employers improved their physical environments to encourage healthy behaviours. To promote employee engagement, employers realise that staff are a product of their environment and that health and wellbeing are vital to keeping employee engagement levels high. The study showed employers started reshaping the physical environment to encourage healthy behaviours.
How did they shape the office environment? They added healthy foods and alternative break out spaces, ergonomic task chairs, monitor arms, sit/stand workstations, and appropriate lighting.
