SPORT in the workplace :
the well-being challenge
at all levels
Employees & employers
Adopting sport in the company is more than ever topical:
While some companies have difficulty recruiting, while companies are asked to pay more and more attention to the well-being of their employees ...
Engage a policy of well-being and physical activity within his company is an unstoppable response to these issues.
The impact is more than beneficial for both the employees and the company.

Reasons to adopt sport in the workplace
The reasons are well known: thanks to these activities, you get healthier and more motivated employees, an enhanced and attractive corporate image, etc.
Note: 89% of company managers observe the benefits of physical and sports activities (more well-being, more team spirit, etc.).
It is therefore an excellent way to succeed in your CSR and QVCTpolicies...
Enough to put a smile on HR's face and get everyone in shape!
It would be crazy to miss it!
and why not
7% or 10% of employees do it(Harris Interactive 2020/OpinionWay, 2018)...
Andwhy not more?
Yet, 83% of want to practice a physical and sports activity (PSA) at work(Harris interactive 2020).
According to a Toluna-Harris Interactive study (2022) for the Medef and Paris 2024, in 2022, only 13% of company managers have set up facilities in favor of sports practice.
What a gap!
Some brakes exist:
▪️Côté employer: we see the difficulties of access to sports facilities, the budget, the fear of responsibility in case of accident, the time taken from work, the problem of premises or the idea that the company does not have this role...
▪️Côté employee: Sport seen as a leisure activity, offers not very adapted, the search for individual practices...
With 80% of workers having a sedentary activity at work, we can clearly measure the road to travel and the interest to combine well-being, health and work!
Inreality, we accumulate all the good points: ideal time and place, but also various assets for companies and employees .
Sport: we all need it!
For that, we know the importance of practicing a sport and having regular physical activities.
It's good for your morale and it's good for your health... All the studies show it. And you don't need to be a pro!
20-30 min/day is enough, according to theWHO, to feel the benefits.
This is not bad! But this masks many disparities: difficulties in maintaining duration or intensity, etc.
Yes, it's hard to maintain regular physical activity!
In 2022, you wanted to train an average of 3 hours and 4 minutes more per week... A good resolution, but not so easy to keep.
Between work and family, you sometimes have little time left to devote to sports activities...
A report (Santé Publique France 2020) explains that between 25 and 40 years old, we don't practice much... Because of a lack of time!
So what to do?
take our word for it
Fun, sport, interaction, challenge, all in one!
It allows you to create a bond with your colleagues, to have new challenges & goals to do sports at your own pace 💪
In 2019, the government has exempted corporate sports from social charges. No social contributions on sports equipment or courses provided to employees...
The exemption from social contributions does not apply to subscriptions or individual registrations to courses.
Sport in the workplace: several formulas
Don't forget that each of your employees will have varying expectations and levels: beginner, sporty, occasional or experienced .
There are many choices and decisions to be made: individual classes? Group classes? What time slot? Which activity(ies)?
Surveyyour teams well to build your project together.
Once this is done, several options are available to you:
1. Organize and set up dedicated areas either inside or outside the company
This gym available to employees gives a dynamic image of the company.
2. Offer a gym membership
The gyms only offer indoor activities. And you are rarely alone...
For the shy ones, it is not yet that!
3. Choose a "turnkey" solution
We can imagine the organization of internal or inter-company competitions (soccer tournaments or even table soccer...) or the collective registration to sports events (races and marathons).
4. A digital offer
On mobile or tablet, applications set the tone for organizing activities!
Team or solo challenges, goal tracking, expert advice or live coaching, online sports courses and replays...
The services are varied.
You can even organize tournaments between companies or form internal teams to challenge the different departments. The price is often attractive.
You do not have a face-to-face coach, but a virtual or video coach...
"I think in March I'll walk my kids to school every day I telecommute! 2km assured each time!"
"Whatever the rank, I loved doing the challenge with you. I am super proud of you all: a crazy team!"
"Hello, I too had a little slump yesterday at home, so I took my bike and came to the class twice in a row! This hasn't happened to me in a long time!"
