The Wellbeing at Work Event arrives in Hong Kong on Tuesday 29 January 2019. The event provides HR, Reward & Benefit professionals and business leaders with the opportunity to learn from experts and their peers about the latest wellbeing developments and successes that are enhancing individual and organisational performance in companies across the APAC region.
I really enjoyed the Wellbeing at Work event and thanks for bringing such a critical subject to the mainstream. The event provided a balance of sharing heart-felt personal experiences, corporate responsibility and a call to action.

12:35 – 13:00: Sitting is bad for you, we are designed to move
We have been told since childhood to sit up and don’t move, yet our bodies are telling us otherwise. Our muscles, our joints, our ligaments, even our bones need us to move to keep them healthy. We are more creative when we move, we think better, we are more productive. Yet, we are sitting down most of the time. No wonder back pain is the leading cause of absenteeism.
Do you know how to sit? Do you ever listen to your body? Sitting can be a pleasurable and healthy experience if we know how to interact with the tools that we have, the sitting machine.
