The average employee spends 48,360 hours sitting at a desk during their career, which is a staggering corporate wellness program statistic. That’s equivalent to five long years! No wonder 80% of Americans have experienced significant back pain at one point or another. We’re living increasingly sedentary lifestyles and, as both employees and employers, we’re paying the price.
