Beyond the Balance Sheet: Incorporating Physical Activity into Your Business

Incorporating Physical Activity into Your Business

You know physical activity is good for you personally, but did you realize it can benefit your business, too? Our partners at BikeWalkKC released the Bike/Walk Friendly Business Guide to highlight ways business owners can encourage their employees and customers to be active. The guide includes ways employers can educate, encourage, incentivize and promote walking and biking. There are even tips for bike parking, making activity easy, and locating your business to encourage active transport.

The guide says, “Businesses that embrace biking and walking see direct benefits to their bottom line through reduced costs, increased productivity, and growing sales. Additionally, Bike/Walk Friendly Businesses enjoy a healthier and happier employees, a boost to their brand, and a stronger connection with their local community.”
