Did you know that in a recent survey conducted on Australian workers:

  • 62% are overweight of which 28% are clinically obese 
  • 10% are completely inactive
  • 46% are on high saturated fat diets and only 8% consume 5 or more serves of fruit and vegetables per day
  • 53% of Australian workers feel stressed or overwhelmed
  • 56% are participating in medium to high risk behaviours such as daily smoking and excess alcohol consumption
  • 56% of employees get less than 7 hours of sleep
  • 21% have experienced a medical condition in the last three months including back and neck pain (29%), heart disease (21%), migraine headaches (14%), asthma (13%) and depression (13%)

The issue is, this leads to an increase in lifestyle related disease, an increase in absenteeism, as well as a decrease in presenteeism (being at work, but due to illness or other health conditions, not fully functioning).

With Australians spending approximately 1/3 of their life at work, the workplace has now been recognised as a priority setting for health promotion by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Australian government.

What does the evidence say? According to Chapman (2007) *

  • 96% of "Best Practice" Australian organisations implemented health and wellbeing initiatives during the last 12months
  • Organisation that didn't promote health and wellness were four times more likely to lose talent in the next 12 months
  • Workplace health programs results in 

                 -  a 25% decrease in sick leave absenteeism

                 -  40.7% decrease in workers compensation costs

                 -  24.2% decrease in disability management costs

                 -  $5.81 saving for every $1 invested in employee well being

  • ‚ÄčResearch also showed where workplace health is managed well, financial performance increases more than 2.5 times.
