Sedentary Behaviour and Physical Activity in the Workplace is an exciting and complex research area. The workplace is often a target for research and interventions due to the number of adults that can potentially be reached, the amount of time people spend in this setting and the reduction in movement across most occupational categories over the years. However, the full potential of this setting with regard to promoting physical activity and enhancing health it yet to be reached, with significant barriers at both the employee and organisational level. This Special Issue is open to any subject area relating to sedentary behaviour and physical activity in the workplace. Novel and innovative research in this area is welcomed, especially where strong collaborations with workplaces, policy or impact can be demonstrated.Dr. Gemma Ryde
