Working at Sports Labs means more than a commitment to excellence -- it's also an invitation and an opportunity to put physical fitness at the top of your priority list and to receive an abundance of encouragement and support on your journey to attain optimal health.

While extracurricular activities are optional at Sports Labs, staff are given ample time to hit the gym and weekly participation in group training is subsidized by the company. For staff who don't want others to see them sweat, there's plenty of supportive office chat on a wide variety of topics -- from healthy food choices, smartwatches and gear to the best locations for hiking, biking and walking. And no matter the fitness level, everyone is encouraged to watch what they eat, get plenty of rest and to keep moving, no matter what physical activities they enjoy.

In late 2017, management noticed that staff were hesitant to work out before scheduled meetings. Sports Labs responded by installing a new shower room in early 2018, making it possible for everyone to freshen up before returning to work. Because of commitment to its employees, Sports Labs is proving to be one of the best companies to work for in Scotland.
