Sydney workspace replaces chairs with treadmills for Steptember

Announcement posted by Red Havas

A Sydney based shared workspace has luanched a novel new initiative which increases mobility by replacing its office chairs with treadmills.

WeWork George Street, part of the global WeWork network of shared workspaces, has installed an entire meeting room with treadmills to get members active and help increase productivity in the workplace.

Initiated in light of the ‘Steptember’ challenge, a charitable initiative encouraging people to take 10,000 steps daily for the month of September, the WeWork space will see members attend meetings whilst walking or jogging on the treadmills.

The shared workspace company focuses on transforming buildings into dynamic working environments designed for optimum creativity and collaboration and is challenging its members to reach 10,000 steps collaboratively every hour the meeting room is in use.

Attached below is the media release.
