How to Make Your Workplace a Walking Workplace

Photo: women walkingArlington County is both a walk-friendly community and a business-friendly community.  That’s why WalkArlington and our colleagues at Arlington Transportation Partners have put together WalkArlington Works, a compilation of readily available Walking Workplace programs and resources to integrate walking into your work day and your workplace.  

After all, you spend a lot of time at work, so why not make it a healthy, productive, and environmentally friendly "walking workplace"?  WalkArlington and Arlington Transportation Partners have done the legwork and gathered the resources for you, so there’s no reason not to give it a try.

What is a Walking Workplace?

A Walking Workplace is an organization that encourages employees to incorporate walking into the work day, whether by changing daily habits, participating in ready-made walking programs, promoting participation in local walking events, or putting together a combination of strategies that fit your workplace.
