One third of employers ignoring workplace wellbeing
21 February 2012
One in three UK workers (35%) believe management don’t care about their workplace wellbeing, according to research by British Heart Foundation.
A study of 2,385 employed UK workers shows that more than two-thirds (67%) say their employer doesn’t provide any opportunities to get fit and healthy.
Employees are also feeling stressed from work, with 18% scoring their stress levels as 7 out of 10 or more with 29% saying they find it difficult to sleep.
Lisa Purcell, Project Manager for Health at Work, a British Heart Foundation programme, says: "These survey results paint a worrying picture of workplace health. Workers seem to be suffering a toxic combination of unhealthy foods, lack of exercise and high levels of stress.
"This National Heart Month we’re calling on the bosses of Britain to help get their employees fit and healthy. When it comes to thinking about your health, your heart is the best place to start and a few small changes can make a huge difference."
More Flexibility in the workplace with Borer's FUSION T&A System.
Borer's Time and Attendance system is designed to offer employees more flexibility in the workplace. With more and more emphasis being placed on work life balance, organisations must define procedures to support employees.
One way to do this is by implementing flexitime by providing staff with flexible working hours to accommodate those working part-time, family priorities, covering absences and job sharing.
