70% of sedentary behaviour takes place at work. Active Working’s mission is to:

  • Promote simple, concise and effective campaigns to key stakeholders on the health risks caused by prolonged sitting and excessive sedentary behaviour
  • Articulate the business case for change towards Active Working for employers
  • Build an international hub for evidence based workplace research

In January 2015 Public Health England and Active Working C.I.C (owners of the Get Britain Standing campaign) jointly commissioned an Expert Statement on the status and impact of prolonged sitting in the office (Download).
