Sydney: Office workers who walk 10,000 steps a day and work out in the gym thrice a week can help their employers with increased productivity of $2,500 a year, an Australian study has claimed.The Body-Brain Performance Institute, in collaboration with Melbourne`s Swinburne University`s Brain Sciences Institute, identified 40 employees of the Melbourne branch of global software company SAP in April. They gave them pedometers, which measure footsteps, and then split them into two groups.The first group was given the task of achieving 10,000 steps a day. While the second group also had to clock 10,000 steps, but in addition had to undergo three training sessions each week, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.Over eight weeks, the employees` brain function, including the ability to plan, remember, simulate future scenarios and make decisions, were measured using a test.
