Research carried out for our Health at Work Report looks at the issues most undermining employee health, as well as what employees want and need to stay healthy. Our nationwide survey found:
  • Almost one in four (24%) employees have experienced MSK issues
  • One in two (51%) have been affected by delays accessing the NHS
  • One in ten (11%) have been extremely affected by operation cancellations
  • One in thirteen (8%) employees has long covid
Where proactive support was given to support employees, this generated business benefits that went far beyond simply reducing sickness absence:
  • One in two (51%) employees given proactive help to stay healthy are less likely to want to work elsewhere, compared to one in twenty (6%) given little or no support
  • Almost half (47%) of those proactively helped to stay healthy feel very productive, compared to just one in ten (11%) of those given little or no wellbeing support
Employees see benefits that help them to stay healthy as being the most valuable:
  • Two-fifths (40%) of employees want help to sustain a good work-life balance
  • One in three (35%) see a supportive manager as the next most important thing
  • Two in five (42%) see apps that help them self-manage conditions as valuable
