For many of you, it should be no surprise that exercise can help boost job performance. But this fact alone does not always give some employers incentive to unload thousands of dollars on an on-site gym. It may not be enough incentive to have them even look into active gaming as a way to help keep their employees fit and healthy. So we are here to discuss the host of reasons why such an investment would pay off large dividends for both the employer and the employee.

Workplace active gaming or other workout programs will help employees get healthier, even if that means a reduction of muscle strains and stress while on the job. But such programs will also help employees lose weight, lower their blood pressure and even sleep better at night. Healthy employees are employees who spend less money on prescriptions.

Another great benefit offered by workout programs is in the way they build a sense of camaraderie among co-workers. Active gaming at the office offers a chance to experience activities that aren’t related to work. Social support is very important when trying to get fit, or even remain fit and your co-workers will offer all the encouragement you need.

As an employer, not only is it nice to have happy and healthy employees but in a simple cost-benefit analysis, you can see how this pays off, very well.

As you can see, it is quite clear why an on-site workout program should be seriously considered.
