Wellbeing Matters Episode 2 : Anna Davison on the importance of movement in the workplace

This is the second of six special episodes of the podcast in which we consider what are the most important facets of workplace wellbeing. We are incredibly grateful to Wellworking for making the series possible. Not only with their sponsorship but in their role as one of the UK’s leading organisations in the field and their commitment to an informed debate on what is a complex and changing issue. Today’s guest is Anna Davison who is head of workplace wellbeing at ukactive, one of the driving forces behind a new approach to physical activity and wellbeing in people’s lives. It draws on the expertise and energy of such high profile figures as Dame Tanni Grey Thompson and Dame Carol Black and works with people and organisations across the UK. Anna talks about the ways that organisations can help to improve the wellbeing of people in the workplace, looking at the vital role of ergonomics as well as the growing emphasis on movement and physical activity and the role that workplace design and working cultures can play. Enjoy.
