Corporate Adviser - One in three employers fail to promote healthy lifestyles

A third of employers are failing to offer support for the physical wellbeing of staff, according to new industry research from Group Risk Development (Grid).

The trade body pointed out such support could be an important way for companies to help reduce the risk of certain cancers among their staff, as lifestyle factors can affect rates of diagnosis.

The report shows that only one in five (20 per cent) of employers offer initiatives to encourage staff to be more active and improve their health. Meanwhile just 18 per cent of employers offer discounted gym membership to encourage staff to get fit, while only 14 per ent offer training on specific areas such as smoking-cessation, nutrition, fitness and lifestyle.
