Join the Active Workplace Study

The number of sedentary jobs in the U.S. has increased steadily since the 1960s. There are currently over 30 million sedentary workers in the U.S. As the number of sedentary jobs in the U.S. continues to rise, effective strategies to reduce sitting time in workplace environments are increasingly important.

The Active Workplace Study is currently recruiting two organizations to participate in their study that focuses on reducing sitting time and promoting physical activity in the workplace through a Total Worker Health approach. Participating organizations will learn about sedentary behavior, stress management and ergonomics in a program that only requires a couple minutes of employee time each day.  The study team is looking to recruit one organization to participate in a supervisor/manager focused study and another organization to be part of a team competition study. The Active Workplace Study is currently studying call centers; however, this new effort will look at other sedentary populations in an office-based setting. Participation is free and involves a 3-month time commitment.
