EIM is looking to use the infrastructure of the worksite to assist in the adoption of the EIM Solution to address the growing number of inactive individuals and provide support for those who require specific attention and guidance. With the added pressures of life, i.e. financial responsibilities, increased workloads and family matters, working professionals are finding that regular physical activity is lower on their list of priorities.
- 1950, 30% of Americans worked in high-activity occupations.
- By 2000, only 22% worked in high-activity occupations.
- Conversely, the percentage of people working in low-activity occupations rose from about 23 to 41%
Many professionals, as they move through the different stages of life, dedicate most of their time being at work. This in turn creates new challenges in terms of health and physical activity (PA) as many professionals tend to live a more sedentary lifestyle while at the office and/or at home.
With the EIM Solution, EIM is looking to address the rise in physical inactivity in today’s workforce, creating and maintaining an environment that truly benefits both the employee and the employer.
