‘Active Design’ aims to turn workers into walkers

Tuesday, April 9th, 2013

The day many Americans start working full-time is the day their health begins to deteriorate.

Kate Lister’s insight:

There’s some great reseach on the need for more active workplaces here. I particularly like this line: “Before the economy descended like a Slinky, a company would reward its stars with huge corner offices, limo-size desks and cushy chairs that, it turns out, were like guns to their occupants’ head.”

Does anyone know of companies that have documented the impact of “active design?”
