Effet d'un programme d'activité physique en entreprise auprès de salariés du secteur tertiaire

Abstract : Current societies show a continuous decline of physical activity level associated with an alarming progression of sedentary behaviors. Considering the inevitable shift in professional activities, workplace has recently been suggested as a relevant and interesting setting for the promotion of physical activity. In this context, the main objective of this PhD thesis was to evaluate the feasibility, implementation and effectiveness of physical activity programs conducted within companies on the main health indicators of tertiary employees. If our first results underline the feasibility of such an approaches and confirm their health benefits, this work enriches the literature in the field of new results particularly important to consider : i) the high level of sedentary time seems to influence the employees’ health level despite increased physical practice ; ii) the introduction of this program type is confronted to a high attrition rate which seems determined by both the initial participants' profile and the short-term effects of the program. Importantly, our results clearly point out that the employees’ general health in the tertiary sector can not only be improved by increasing the physical activity level, but needs a concomitant reduction of their sedentary time. If the work carried out until now has been independently focusing on the promotion of physical activity or on anti-sedentary time strategies, combined individualized approaches must now be carried out.
