Ariel – this is a really great idea to take the stairs. It takes little effort and helps people to add a little extra exercise to their day. I find it interesting that they made changes to the stairwell to increase its attractiveness to employees too.
I often think that our elevator can take forever to reach our floor, so I took to the stairs when running back and forth to different departments. Even on a “quick” day, taking the stairs takes the same – if not less – time than waiting for the elevator.
