BDaily News - Employers acknowledge growing health and wellbeing issues among Gen X

With years of experience and expertise, Generation X, born 1965 to 1976, and now between the ages of 43 and 54, form the backbone of most organisations, but GRiD warns of growing health and wellbeing issues among this group, and the knock-on effects for employers in how to support them.

  • 40% of employers believe that stress & anxiety related to home life, including managing difficult relationships and caring responsibilities, is affecting their Gen X staff - more than any other demographic.
  • 37% of employers worry that ill-health related to lifestyle is affecting their Gen X staff - more than any other demographic.
  • 35% of employers worry that a general lack of fitness caused by a non-active lifestyle/sedentary working is affecting their Gen X staff - more than any other demographic.
  • After millennials, Gen X staff is the demographic that employers believe is the most likely to suffer from stress & anxiety relating to work.
  • Similarly, after millennials, Gen X staff is the group employers think are most likely to be stressed by finances.
  • Finally, second only to baby boomers, employers worry that Gen X have a high tendency to suffer from chronic health conditions.
