On Your Feet Britain

The British Heart Foundation (BHF) and Get Britain Standing have launched a campaign called On Your Feet Britain to encourage office workers to switch their sitting time to standing time.

Ahead of the launch of On Your Feet Britain, research found that office workers spend too much of their time at work sedentary.
