What is StepJockey?
They are a brand new initiative working to prompt greater physical activity and improved well-being within workplaces by labelling stairs and walkways for 'calorie burn'.
You’d be forgiven for wondering but stair climbing can have a significant and positive impact on an individual’s health over time. Unlike walking, which humans have evolved to do while burning minimal amounts of energy, stair climbing is classed as a ‘vigorous’ physical activity and burns more calories per minute than jogging.
By using StepJockey, smart signs to label stairs and walkways for calorie burn, you will quickly and seamlessly encourage greater fitness among your staff.
You will also be sending a clear signal to staff, clients and other stakeholders that you value a healthy working environment and take corporate citizenship seriously.
For desk-bound businesses in particular StepJockey can be transformative - boosting health, engagement and productivity.
Soon, you'll also be able to use your smart phone to scan the smart signs and start to measure and track your calorie burn.
