Working adults spend the majority of their waking hours on the job, at the office, and on the clock. By integrating physical activity into workplace culture and infrastructure we can improve the health and wellbeing of our workforce AND boost employee productivity, creativity, and retention.
What is an Active RVA-Certified Workplace?
An Active RVA-Certified Workplace adopts, supports, and engages physical activity as part of their company’s culture. Active RVA-Certified Workplaces support their employees to maximize their health and wellness through regular physical activity. By utilizing programs, infrastructure, and measurable results, Active RVA-Certified Workplaces provide meaningful pathways for all employees to get moving and get healthy.
Why should I get my workplace certified?
Making workplace communities active has benefits in almost every direction. Here are some important examples of what getting active and getting certified can do for your company:
- Lower healthcare costs.
- Increase employees’ productivity and job satisfaction.
- Recruit and retain the best talent.
- Boost creativity.
- Media promotion and brand recognition for your company. In addition to honoring Certified Workplaces at our annual Active RVA Awards Luncheon, we highlight Active RVA Workplaces in an annual issue of Richmond Magazine, promote them on Active RVA’s social media outlets, and feature them in newsletters and media reporting.
- Promote a culture of health for all employees with lifelong benefits.
