The positive relation between physical activity and productivity has been revealed to humans since the advent of civilization. Research shows that sport and recreation influence raising morale, motivation, productivity, and better mood and atmosphere in the working environment.
One survey in the Wall Street Journal, states that satisfied employees are twice as productive. Research published in the International Journal of Workplace Health Management confirmed that the clarity and energy of people training remain high, regardless of their workload.
Employers could help them by hosting a sport-based team building activities so staff goes out of the office, enjoy a fun day outdoors and develop better friendship with their colleagues.
The importance of the role of physical exercise in the health of their workforce and thus in the profitability of the company, has been consistently proven.
Since the industrial revolution, physical activity and sport at the workplace resulted in 5 major benefits:
Builds strong bonds: The improved communication between employees will facilitate better communication and thus work is carried faster and more efficiently.
Develops sense of contribution and belonging: The effort of the individual on the sport team and the proper functioning of a group in games lead to inspiring success.
Feel good from endorphin release: Exercise releases endorphins which can give a lot of energy to the body. One feels better, has more stamina, and can cope with his/her everyday tasks.
Reduce stress: Clearing your mind before a big workday will help you present yourself with high self-esteem and smart thinking.
Discover something you love or good at: If you find satisfaction outside work, you will most likely feel happier at work too.
