Abstract This study aimed to describe the indicators of physical activity and quality of life (QoL) among public servants from a federal institute in Northeastern Brazil. This cross-sectional study included 238 public servants (50.2% women, > 18 years-old) from all 28 campuses from the Federal Institute of Ceara in 2016. QoL was assessed using the WHOQOL-brief (domains: physical, psychological, social relationship, environment and global QoL) and Workplace QoL Assessment Inventory (domains: workplace conditions, workplace organization, socio-professional relationships, professional recognition, and work-life link), considering a percentage (0-100%) scale. The regular participation in physical activities (30 minutes daily, 5+ times/week) and in an institutional QoL Program (0=no; 1=yes) were reported. Student's t-test was used. Regular participation in physical activity practice and in the QoL Program was reported by 30% and 17.7% of individuals, respectively. Mean values of QoL domains ranged from (workplace organization) to 67.2% (physical domain). Individuals who reported practicing physical activities had higher WHOQOL-brief domain scores (difference range: 6.1-7.8%, all p<0.01), but no for work-related QoL domains (p>0.05). Servants who reported participating in the QoL Program also had higher WHOQOL-brief domain scores (difference range: 5.9-7.0%, all p<0.02), but lower scores in workplace conditions (-5.0%) and workplace organization (-11.2% all p<0.05) domains, when comparing to peers who did not participate in the QoL Program. In conclusion, increasing opportunities for regular physical activity practice in the occupational context should be encouraged, although our results indicated that the direction of their relationship between physical activity and QoL may vary according to the domains. External funding details None.
