22nd May 2012

Fred Turok said: "Most successful business leaders know instinctively that a healthy workforce is a productive workforce. But what may shock boardrooms up-and-down the country is just how harmful inactivity and being sedentary actually is to our health and wellbeing, and moreover just how damaging it is for your business."
