Linda Levesque, Vice President, Corporate Benefits at Unum writes, "Promoting wellbeing in the workplace benefits both employers and employees. A healthy employee is likely to take fewer sick days and be more productive, loyal and committed, knowing that their wellbeing is important to their employer. In short, investing in wellbeing pays back through better productivity and retention, and lower sickness absence costs."

Stand up more According to experts, standing up in the workplace for at least three hours a day has the same benefits as competing in 10 marathons each year. One way to do this could be installing chest-level high tables in an area of the office for working and meetings
