Physical Wellness in the Virtual Workplace: Get Ready to Move!



Summary: For many, the rapid shift to virtual work brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in less than ideal “work from home” conditions, often make-shift and non-ergonomically sound office set-ups, and increasingly complex (and stressful) work-life priorities. Workers have faced new challenges to achieve and maintain physical wellness that require commitment to movement and mobility. Join Jenn and Karl Leard as they team-up with Career Planning Academy to share insights into the increasingly critical role of physical wellness for employees, employers and career professionals in the virtual and rapidly changing workplace. Participate in live Fitness Trainer-led demonstrations of core movement and foundation-training exercises (suitable for all physical capability levels) recommended for building habits of physical wellness at work.
