HR Review - WOMEN MORE CONCERNED ABOUT HEALTH AND WELLBEING THAN MEN

Female employees are more concerned than male employees regarding their health and wellbeing.

This is according to GRiD, the industry body for the group risk sector which found that women are more concerned about stress and anxiety relating to overworking, the uncertainty of the future, worries about their finances and living with long-term illnesses.

The research found that 21 per cent of women vs 18 per cent of men feel stress or anxiety due to the pressures of the job or overworking. Also, 18 per cent of women vs 14 per cent of men are worried about their finances and debt and 14 per cent of women compared to 8 per cent of men are suffering from stress and anxiety due to living with a long-term health issue.

Men were slightly more concerned about how their job impacts their home life with 14 per cent of men vs 12 per cent of women. However, men and women were equally worried about their general lack of fitness due to their job.
