TJ Supan 6th, For example, every traditional meeting has an agenda, an objective, and someone who directs the meeting. Next, we reviewed research on how walking meetings are conducted. The mainstream literature outlined a common approach to conducting a walking meeting, and the grey literature provided anecdotal tips and instructions that suggested a similar setup and design ie, create an agenda, assign roles, take notes, and so on 10— From this formative research on traditional and walking meetings 12—14common themes were combined and outlined into a 7-item core component list that reflects best practices for walking meetings and serves as the foundation for a uniform WaM protocol Box.
The WaM protocol was assessed across a 3-week period: Create an agenda for your WaM. To make the walk more comfortable, bring items such as water, sunglasses, and sunscreen. Have the group leader assign roles to each walking meeting group member. Follow the prescribed route. Walk for at least 30 minutes. After the walking meeting, sit and conclude to wrap up meeting; take care of paperwork or other tasks that could not be accomplished during WaM.
Study measures survey and accelerometry After recruitment and consent, study participants were asked at baseline to complete a paper-based survey with questions on sociodemographic characteristics and standardized measures of self-reported PA the International Physical Activity Questionnaire [IPAQ] Although we administered the entire IPAQ to study participants, for this analysis we used only the 6 work-related PA questions.
The identical survey measures were administered 3 more times: On the first day, the accelerometer was initialized by the research team and participants were shown how to attach and remove the device. Participants were instructed to wear the accelerometer all day except while they were sleeping, taking a shower, or swimming.
Participants also kept a daily log throughout the 3 weeks of the pilot study documenting the beginning and end of work shifts along with times they wore the accelerometer and when they removed it. The accelerometers recorded data in 1-minute intervals, providing the number of counts for each minute for 21 days.
A count was defined as any activity that was measured by the accelerometer. At the end of 21 days, the researchers retrieved the accelerometer from the worker and downloaded its data to the study computer. For minutes associated with the workday, each minute was assigned a level of PA intensity according to definitions established by Freedson and colleagues PA levels were analyzed on the day of the week each group had its walking meeting.
For example, if a group held its walking meeting on Wednesday during week 2 and week 3, we collected data on the number of steps taken on those implementation days and on the previous Wednesday of their baseline week.
Measures of WaM protocol implementation, feasibility, and acceptability were defined Table 1. Focus group sessions were conducted to ask participants questions about the extent to which the WaM protocol was implemented, whether the WaM protocol was feasible, and whether it was acceptable to study participants.
Focus groups To complement our survey data, we conducted a 1-hour focus group with each walking group at the end of the pilot study to discuss 3 broad domains: The focus group team consisted of a moderator and another researcher who collected paperwork and took notes. The focus group questions were developed after collecting the quantitative data and were based on the WaM protocol. We used grounded-theory methodology 17,18 to develop a discussion guide, which consisted of a mix of 4 to 7 open-ended questions for each domain.
Statistical analysis To examine how the walking meetings affected objectively measured PA, we compared accelerometry data for the day of the baseline week with the accelerometry data for the 2 days of the walking meetings. Four levels of PA were examined: Therefore, we combined moderate, vigorous, and very vigorous PA levels into one category to examine changes in PA across the 3-week study period. Differences between periods were assessed by using paired t tests.
We used conservative 2-tail tests and emphasize that this descriptive study was not designed to determine cause and effect. Focus group discussions were transcribed, and text was entered into NVivo version 10 QSR International Pty Ltd for electronic coding, data retrieval, and analysis. Inductive thematic analysis was used to identify main themes across groups. Emerging themes were verified through discussion, and a coding framework based on the themes and domains was developed Transcripts were coded by H.
The coding was reviewed by 2 coauthors A. Top Results The 17 participants had a mean age of Mean body mass index was Seven team leaders who were invited to participate expressed interest in the study but did not meet eligibility requirements. Initially, the sample comprised 8 team leaders, 2 groups of 3 members, and 6 groups of 2 members; one participant eventually dropped out.
Of the 8 groups, all completed at least one walking meeting and 7 groups completed both walking meetings. All participants agreed to the WaM strategy after being taught how to organize and conduct the walking meeting during study initiation. Although the protocol suggested 30 minutes as a minimum for the walking meeting, all groups walked from 30 to 40 minutes.
Five groups followed the prescribed path. Of the 3 groups that did not follow the path, 2 groups took a different route to accomplish tasks at other campus locations during their walking meeting; the third group took a wrong turn but later rejoined the prescribed path. All groups agreed that the WaM protocol was acceptable according to the measures defined Table 1including the suitability of walking meetings for their work setting.
When we asked focus group participants about the extent to which they implemented the components of the WaM protocol, 7 groups created and printed an agenda to take on their walk, 3 groups took written notes, and one group engaged in a sit-and-conclude session after their walk. All groups used their established meeting times and places for their walking meetings, and all groups felt they had proper attire and items to make their walk comfortable.
Six groups completed 5 of 7 prescribed WaM protocol components. The 2 components least frequently completed were the sit-and-conclude session and creating an agenda. The mean SD number of minutes in light PA on walking-meeting days among all participants decreased from On the day of the walking meeting, the mean number of minutes spent in moderate, vigorous, or very vigorous PA increased from Nine participants did not meet the 10, steps goal during baseline week; by week 3, two of these 9 participants reached 10, steps.
When asked about their typical meeting at work, participants had the following comments: Sometimes our meetings get cut short. Scheduling, vacation, coverage, etc. When asked how teams organized their walking meetings, participants stated the following: So, I kinda multitask during our meetings.
I loved it [walking meeting]. It was very energizing, very invigorating. We got a lot done, we went through our agenda completely, efficiently, and it helped us generate ideas as we were discussing a topic. Top Discussion Traditional seated meetings that were converted into a walking format using the WaM protocol increased moderate, vigorous, and very vigorous PA levels by 10 minutes among our sample of white-collar workers.
Many jobs in the white-collar workforce involve a disproportionate amount of sitting time, which can increase the risk for being overweight or obese Although several interventions have aimed to increase PA levels in the workplace eg, by using stability balls instead of chairs and sit—stand work stations instead of traditional desksthe scientific literature consists of either low-quality evidence or equivocal results on the effect of these interventions.
Data from this pilot study suggest that walking meetings might provide an alternative to the sedentary workdays of white-collar workers.
Focus groups suggest that the WaM protocol was feasible, accepted, and successfully implemented by study participants.Create Opportunities — CLA Helps Clients From Start to Finish
Among the 8 participating groups, 7 completed both walking meetings. These findings are in contrast with those of Cooper et al, who found that university employees who reported a lack of time for PA and perceived that fitness facilities at work were expensive did not engage in PA We found that walking meetings were accepted and implemented by white-collar university employees in this pilot study and that these workers could easily fit a walking meeting into the workday with little to no burden to their workflow.
This study has several limitations, including a small number of participants and a short duration. Time constraints a 7-month academic year and a limited number of accelerometers prohibited the research team from recruiting more participants and conducting additional cycles.
The use of accelerometers may have caused a Hawthorne-type or reactivity event Despite these limitations, this pilot study has several strengths, including the collection of both quantitative and qualitative data, a flexible walking meeting protocol, and a uniform community of workers who engaged in similar tasks.
A unique aspect of this study was the flexible walking meeting protocol. Rather than allowing participants to engage in a walking meeting without guidance, the research team provided participants with suggestions and a prescribed route with the aim of eliminating confusion, providing autonomy, and stimulating productivity while walking in a safe work environment. This study adds information on walking meetings to the scientific literature, where little research exists.
