It is a general management journal, which includes studies on different aspects of organizations: structure, processes, and performance, and equally on cultural, behavioural, and technological subjects.

In this article, the authors describe the benefits of physical activity programmes, and the benefits and motivations related to workplace physical activity in Hungary. The results showed that the main managerial motivations for starting physical activity programmes were to increase engagement and reduce turnover and absenteeism. Employees are mostly motivated by introjected and identified regulators, suggesting that workplace sport is not fully intrinsically motivated and loosely linked to managerial goals.
