Workers spending their lunch break at the gym may be commonplace in most Western countries, but in Sweden some employers are pushing the idea even further, making on-the-job exercise compulsory.

 

在多數西方國家,勞工在健身房度過午休時間,似乎司空見慣,但在瑞典,有些雇主延伸思考,讓運動成為工作上的義務。

 

Every Friday, employees of fashion and sportswear retailer Bjorn Borg leave their desks at the company’s Stockholm headquarters to get their weekly workout at a nearby gym.

 

每週五,瑞典運動服飾零售商「比約恩.柏格」的員工,都會離開斯德哥爾摩公司總部的辦公室,到附近一間健身房進行每週運動。

 

There is no getting out of itfor more than two years the company founded by the Swedish tennis legend has made on-the-job exercise mandatory at the initiative of chief executive Henrik Bunge, a 44-year-old built like a wrestler.

 

沒有人可以例外,因為這間由瑞典網球傳奇人物比約恩.柏格創立的公司,2年多來貫徹體態宛如摔角選手的44歲執行長漢瑞克.邦吉的倡議,強制要求員工在工作時間運動。

 

"If you don’t want to exercise or be a part of the company culture, you have to go," says Bunge, without batting an eye. So far no one has quit because of the requirement, he adds.

 

「如果你不想運動,或不願融入企業文化,你就必須離開。」邦吉眼睛眨也不眨地說。他還提到,迄今沒有任何人因為這項要求而辭職。

 

The main aims of the policy are to boost productivity and profitability while fostering camaraderie in the work force.

 

這項政策的主要目標,是希望在提高生產力和利潤之外,也能增進同事間的情誼。
