We all know that a regular exercise regimen is key to our mental and physical well-being. It allows us to blow off some steam, get our muscles moving and our heart pumping. But what can you do when your daily exercise has begun to blend in with the rest of your at times monotonous routine?
Experts are finding that a daily exercise routine may no longer be enough to ensure a healthy lifestyle. Most working Americans find themselves sitting still at a desk all day which can lead to a decrease in your metabolism, an increased risk of developing diabetes and reduced cardiovascular health. Even if you exercise daily it’s nearly impossible to counteract the damage done throughout the day. This means that it is critical that throughout the working day you get up and move around a little. Some offices are also adopting new policies to try to improve their employee’s health, including adjustable desks which allow you to stand, desks with treadmills attached and substituting exercise balls for chairs.

Training can seem like an easy answer for managers looking to increase employee productivity. However, many managers complain that the training session did not produce any long term effects or that the training participants did not make any changes in their performance. Why is it that companies spend thousands of dollars on training, and yet employees do not seem to benefit from it?
Often time managers implement a training session that fills the employees with knowledge, but not practical skills to make productive changes. Manager assistants are usually put in charge of setting up training, but this is detrimental to the training because the assistant typically is not aware of the day to day tasks of the other employees. When the manager puts the training responsibility on the assistant and is not present at the training, participants believe they are given the option of snoozing through the training because they already know if the manager is not behind the new procedures, then punishments or rewards most likely will not follow. Another mistake made by managers is requiring training attendance of the entire company, and therefore the training is not specific enough to be of benefit to the attendees.
