Sit Less September

Sitting for prolonged periods is bad for your health no matter how fit you are. Nō reira e Tu Tātau! So let’s stand up for yourself!

A workplace that supports staff to sit less and move more can benefit from more productive staff, reduced absenteeism and increased staff engagement through improved health.

Workplaces are encouraged to do Sit Less September - starting on Monday 2nd September 2019. This will show staff know that your organisation supports this campaign for their health and wellbeing.
