Ibec, the group that represents Irish business, has today launched Ireland’s fifth National Workplace Wellbeing Day, taking place on Friday, 12th April 2019.

As part of this year’s activities, employers are being called upon to arrange a “Lunchtime Mile” - a one mile cycle, jog, run, walk or swim for employees in the vicinity of their workplace.

Public and private sector organisations across the country are expected to participate in the day, which aims to improve employee health through promoting better physical activity and nutrition in the workplace. 

More than 700 companies took part in 2018, companies that are interested can sign up at www.wellbeingday.ie

Launching Workplace Wellbeing Day 2019, CEO at Ibec, Danny McCoy said, "We are seeing an increase in employers prioritising workplace wellbeing and a recent Ibec study shows that 76% of employees say they believe there is a positive link between employees’ health and wellbeing and the company productivity. Given the considerable amount of time people spend in the workplace we are encouraging employers of all sizes and across all sectors to get involved."
