Office car parks could be moved a mile away

Sarah Coles

A crisis meeting at NHS Worcester produced a bizarre array of possible solutions to the problem of obesity. Amongst the weirdest was to force employers to build the company car park a mile away from the office, so that staff are required to build some walking into their day. Presumably the prospect of staff spending half the day fetching things from the car is one for the productivity team to worry about.

This wasn't the only unusual suggestion at the meeting: and this isn't the only time that employees have been subjected to odd ideas in the name of good health.
