ukactive Executive Director Steven Ward has responded to new research published in the Lancet today, which highlights the dangers of physical inactivity.
Following his comments in today's Daily Telegraph front-page story, Ward appeared on Julia Hartley-Brewer's Talk Radio show to discuss the practical steps that employers can take to embed physical activity in offices.
"We're going into our places of work, which have environments set up to get us sitting down and doing nothing," he said.
"If you create a culture of an active office you create the culture of a happy and engaged office.
"Employers could do something as simple as putting 'walking meeting' as the first option on meeting-room booking lists."
