Shop staff are fitness guinea pigs
A pioneering project looking at how a healthy lifestyle affects work performance could provide a boost for the Welsh economy. Staff at Tesco Broughton are about to become guinea pigs for a unique experiment bringing together the supermarket, local authority, sports chiefs and university experts. Over the next 12 months, a team of 75 volunteers will have their physical health, psychological wellbeing and work productivity measured by researchers at Liverpool’s John Moore’s University. In the first programme of its kind ever to be undertaken in Wales, the tests will be evaluated to produce a blueprint of physical activity that could be used by other businesses. The Tesco staff have been split into three groups: the first will undertake a programme of activity specifically planned for them, the second will be encouraged to take regular exercise they have chosen themselves, and the third will carry on with activities they already enjoy. The aim of the project is that not only will the employees enjoy and benefit from their lifestyle changes, but that analysis will also show that regular physical activity can help improve staff productivity, cut down on sickness and create a better workplace atmosphere. The Sports Council for Wales and Sport Flintshire have devised the programme with the support of the store’s management.
