Health-related policies for physical activity1

Workplace policies promote a corporate “culture of good health.”

Flextime can provide more physical activity opportunities for employees

  • Flexible times for beginning and ending work each day, or “flextime,” policies can be useful in creating opportunities for employees to engage in physical activity during the day yet maintain their expected number of work hours. Flextime policies allow employees to shift their work schedules, such as coming in earlier or later or taking a lunch break at alternate times
