Every day is ‘A Day’ in PR land and a group of companies that make standing desks and other ‘active office’ equipment has collaborated to come up with On Your Feet Day, a new initiative for Thursday 28th April to get people to appoint a Chief Wiggle Officer in their workplaces. Suggestions to ‘get people standing’ and to ‘wiggle it, not sit on it’ include the introduction of standing meetings (a sure fire way to speed them up at least), compulsory stretches or an alert at random times to make everyone stand up and sit down again. Although this may seem like a shortcut to becoming the most loathed person in the company, it does have a serious message about reducing sedentary behaviour. People are being invited to register (at no cost) with the website to receive details of a range of movement-oriented team-building suggestions, and a competition for workplace groups who embrace the idea with the most enthusiasm.
