It’s safe to assume that productive employees increase your company’s overall success. One way to raise the level of performance in your staff is to encourage them to get up and moving throughout the day. It’s not just about physical health; studies show that light exercise yields better mental performance.

The study, conducted by sports scientist Jack Groppel and the Organizations in MOTION program, kept track of 753 employees working at New Balance. Over half the workers attempted to fit more physical activity during their workday. Of those 53 percent, 42 percent reported greater clarity and concentration while working.
