The good, the best and the fittest:

Competitiveness in health and fitness with the WeFitter API

Fitness: The final frontier

In another blog we explored how better fitness at the workplace can benefit everyone. For one, it can create a better relaxing environment for the employees that spend most of their time behind their screen. Yet, nowadays people find their entertainment more and more in electronics.

Although tech has its incredible benefits, which we will later talk about in a new blog, we should also acknowledge the ongoing ‘lazy effect’ that our devices condemn us to. Thus, the benefits of workplace fitness programs are countless. Healthcare costs for employees are significantly lower for healthy employees than for unhealthy employees!
The improved health of employees will reduce absenteeism. By making fitness a common topic in the workplace, you get countless benefits, amongst which better teamwork, better productivity and better engagement. Better, better, better!

Fitter together

Workplace wellness programs are a win-win situation for both employers and employees. Healthcare costs for employees are significantly lower for healthy employees than for unhealthy employees! The improved health of employees will reduce absenteeism. Employees will feel better, reducing stress in the workplace and therefore also improving the work performance.
