Decathlon introduces “movement breaks” to boost wellbeing

Decathlon has introduced ‘movement breaks’ for all UK employees to help them maintain and improve their mental wellbeing during the month of January .

The move follows new research by the retailer that found that two thirds of working people in the UK believe that having time in their day to move would significantly improve their mood and performance at work.

The scheme will see all 1,655  of Decathlon’s UK team members, including store staff and head office workers, being encouraged to “to get moving”  through activities such as brisk outdoor walks, yoga stretches and low impact bodyweight exercise.

Its launch coincides with the retailer’s partnership with RED January, a nationwide campaign that empowers people to move every day for their mental wellbeing.

Delphine Mazillier, Decathlon UK’s head of CSR, said: “We understand that exercising either side of the working day can be an inconvenience, with the lack of daylight in the winter months seriously affecting peoples’ ability to safely exercise outdoors. The solution is simple, get moving while at work.

“We hope that by encouraging teammates to take 30 minutes out of their working day to ‘move for their mind’, it will benefit both their health and mental wellbeing. We challenge other businesses to join us in helping employees to get moving for a more positive mind.”
