Swedish fashion and sportswear retailer Bjorn Borg has an interesting company policy. They require all of their employees take part in a weekly workout session.
This has been going on for the last two years and the CEO says nobody's quit over it...yet.
The retailer isn't the only company to dictate a policy like this. They say it aims to increase productivity and profitability while also boosting camaraderie amongst staffers. CEO Henrik Bunge believes workers are happier and healthier because of the workers, and it lets workers get to know each other better.
I don't know if I want to spend time working out with my co-workers, but I love the idea of a company taking an active effort to keep employees healthy. I wish mine did something like that.
