Get Up & Go in St. Clair County IL Encourages Health in the WorkplaceAdults spend many hours in the workplace, and so the work environment exerts a powerful influence on our health and well-being.

Can you, or do you walk to some of your lunchtime personal errands? Do you have exercise facilities at work or a safe place to walk on your lunch break? The work environment is a key ingredient in promoting better health for employees. There is strong evidence that workplace health promotion programs help employees reduce weight and body fat.
