'Meetings on the Move' spark workplace productivity, fights obesity

By Super Admin

Washington, Apr 12 (ANI): For those wondering how to improve their employees' productivity, 'Meetings on Move' concept might do the needful.

Researchers from Washington University in St. Louis have revealed that implementing the 'Meetings on Move' concept would significantly increase productivity and improve employees' health by getting them up from their desks and on the move.

"Forty percent of the population are absolute couch potatoes," said Dr Debra Haire-Joshu, and professor of social work at Washington University.

"That's almost a learned behaviour. You learn to sit at school; you learn to sit at work.

"What 'Meetings on the Move' (MOTM) really does is get us active like we used to be when we were kids. We can learn then to bring activity back into our daily life, just like we learned to take it out.

"On a personal level, I struggle with a chronic condition - migraines, and research shows that getting away from a computer and adding extra physical activity can help chronic conditions like that," she added.

The researchers said that MOTM could improve productivity by reenergizing employees by getting their blood pumping.

Ideas or problems can look very different once an individual steps out of the office.

It can also lower stress and help improve chronic conditions such as diabetes or migraines. (ANI)
