Fitness With Status Social

Bondholder Status Social has implemented a new policy to encourage its staff to get fit and healthy. 

Staff at the social media management company have been told that they can arrive an hour late at work, if they utlise the time to exercise instead. The policy has been introduced to encourage staff to get fitter, which is believed to increase worker productivity. 

Mark Saxby, Director, said: "Most of our staff spend their days creating social media updates on a computer so their working day is spent sitting down.

"Research has shown that exercising before work has a positive effect on employee mood, productivity and even absence rates. I don't expect staff to have to work later to make up for the time spent being active."
