HR Review - THE WELLBEING OF BABY BOOMERS CONCERNS EMPLOYERS MORE THAN ANY OTHER GENERATION

Employers are more concerned about the health and wellbeing of baby boomers compared to any other generation in the workplace.

This was discovered by Group Risk Development (GRiD), the industry body for the group risk protection sector. The research found that employers’ concern for their staff’s wellbeing increases as workers get older.

Employers’ specific concerns for baby boomers are that they tend to be non-active and have a general lack of fitness, with 32 per cent thinking this. However, 29 per cent think the same of Generation X and 30 per cent of millennials.

There is also a belief that baby boomers are more likely to be dealing with long-term health conditions such as diabetes, and that they may be obese, smoke a lot or be alcohol dependent.
