Table Tennis & Workplace Wellbeing
Date: 29 Nov 2017
The newest report from Table Tennis England (as part of their Loop at Work programme) looks at the positive impacts of playing table tennis in the working environment, including employee job satisfaction, workplace wellbeing, physical activity and general wellbeing.
Throughout the study employees played table tennis during their lunch breaks, this gave them a chance to take a ‘proper’ break from work, de-stress and unwind. It also allowed for staff to catch up with other colleagues.
Those that played table tennis during their lunch break reported better moods and increased wellbeing compared to those that did not. The research also states that those who regularly played table tennis experienced a higher job satisfaction and reported greater competence in the workplace.
The employees that played regular table tennis also felt much more connected to their colleagues than those who didn’t partake in the activity.
