The Walking Meeting
Many companies are now taking positive steps towards improving the health and well-being of their staff. More and more, companies are shaking away the conventional norms of working and embracing new technologies and corporate change. So what better way to move away from convention than by swapping your boardroom table for a collection of treadmill desks?
Not only will the treadmill desks provide a great ice-breaker for visiting clients they also create a great area for staff to meet and swap ideas. Research has also found that meeting times are shorter, more focused and altogether more productive.
Walking has long been a great way to relieve stress and meetings held on treadmill desks are found to be more positive. As you walk you start to feel invigorated, you start to relax, your body releases tension, thanks in part to a dose of feel-good chemicals such as endorphins in your brain. Walking also increases blood flow moving more oxygen to the brain which stimulates and encourages brain activity.
So will walking meetings be the new office trend? We certainly hope so!
