Healthy Worksite Environments

Worksites and worksite policies can have a profound impact on nutrition and physical activity in workers and can help foster sustainable behavior change.

Most adults spend a large part of their time at work. Improving access to healthy foods and finding ways to increase physical activity in the workplace helps people choose healthier foods to eat, enhances wellness, and improves worker productivity.

Many businesses in Washington (70 percent) strongly agree that physical activity and nutrition have an impact on how well employees perform their job duties.
