Now in its second year of being a Healthier Work recognised business, Barmco Mana McMurray are enjoying the benefits of the program. In recognition of their commitment to a healthier work environment they were awarded their Silver Status certificate at the Healthier Work Breakfast in October, where they also participated in the ‘Squat Challenge’ alongside the ACT WorkSafety Commissioner Mr Mark McCabe.
More recently they completed the Healthier Work- 8 Week Active Workplace Challenge; a challenge that included breaking up workdays with the recommended 30 minutes of physical activity every work day for good health. With 40 different options to choose from, including standing on one leg for all phone calls, planking, squats, walking and standing meetings, it “kept the team on their toes… and will hopefully result in long term habits” said Leah Wheelhouse from their office.
