57 percent of respondents agree with today’s statement: Sports and physical activity should be allowed during working hours. “But it’s also the employee’s own choice.”

The outgoing government is doing very little to get the Dutch to exercise more, says the Dutch Sports Council in a letter to Mariette Hammer. According to the Sports Council, the sports supply in neighborhoods should be improved, and sports and exercise should be allowed during working hours.

According to the majority of voters, a great idea. “Yes, they are all together or in shifts sharing fifteen minutes with Olga Commandeur!” Says someone who can totally see it. “On lunch break, eat for 15 minutes, walk for half an hour, and go to work back and forth by bike or e-bike supported. Occupational therapist and physical therapist are on the premises as standard. Encourage students to encourage people to sit actively. Remove elevators. Use ropes along the stairs so that less mobile people can’t get up, showers are available so cyclists can change clothes, etc.”

Others think it’s a good idea, but it’s hard to do in business hours. Someone says “it should be employee choice”. “A little longer lunch break also means coming home later. Of course you can also exercise after working hours. But the employer benefits from a decent and healthy staff, so why not make sports contributions or sign up for a gym?”

The 43 percent who disagree had other priorities. One says: “The Dutch Sports Council is another interest group that wants to achieve its goals at the expense of others.” “As an employer, I can only say that I am glad I said goodbye to such unmotivated employees in the past.”

Another person says, “We have enough free time, right?” “I’d rather stop working sooner.”
