Bdaily News - Baby boomers require physical support more than mental support in the workplace

Although employers realise that baby boomers are not without stress and anxiety, their main concern for this cohort of employees is physical health and wellbeing not mental health, according to research from GRiD, the industry body for the group risk protection sector.

Employers believe that baby boomers – the generation born from 1946 to 1964 (aged 57-75) – have the least amount of stress and anxiety relating to their work life, home life and their finances but employers have more concerns regarding their physical health and fitness:

  • 42% of employers say their biggest concern for their mature employees is that they are living with long-term chronic illness or health concerns such as diabetes
  • The second biggest concern for employers (at 37%) is regarding a general lack of fitness caused by a non-active lifestyle / sedentary working
  • 31% of employers have concerns around ill-health relating to lifestyle such as obesity, smoking and alcohol-dependence for their baby boomer staff
