The majority accept that they need to make personal changes.Most (77 per cent) employees point to their current level of physical activity, while many (69 per cent) acknowledge that they need to eat more healthily. Just over half believe that they have the right work-life balance. Meanwhile there is a clear gender divide when it comes to sleep with only 46% of women saying they get enough sleep, compared to 51 per cent of men.Danny McCoy, Ibec’s CEO, says that the research demonstrates the positive effect that workplace wellbeing initiatives can have on employee health.“It is very encouraging to see from the research that employee uptake is strong when employers provide health facilities and services, and I would urge any employer who is not already active in this area to make a start on National Workplace Wellbeing Day. It’s a win-win for all involved. Employees will be healthier and happier, and employers will benefit from a more engaged and productive workforce, as well as a higher staff retention rate,” he said.For companies looking to expand this year, there is strong evidence that wellbeing initiatives make a difference when it comes to retaining and recruiting staff. Two-thirds (66 per cent) of employees surveyed said that they are more likely to stay long term with an employer who is interested in their health and wellbeing, with over half saying that they would consider leaving an employer who didn’t. Meanwhile a company culture that supports employee wellbeing is an important consideration when it comes to choosing a new employer.Glanbia, Fexco, Lucozade Suntory Ribena Ireland, The National Rehabilitation Hospital, Nestle Ireland, Peter Mark, Port of Galway and Sky Ireland are among hundreds of employers across the public and private sector that have already signed up for the campaign. On the day, they are planning a range of activities to promote better nutrition as well as physical and mental wellbeing amongst their employees.Most employees say their inactivity during their working day is because of the nature of their job and Danny McCoy is encouraging employers to use Workplace Wellbeing Day to try out new, fun ways to promote more exercise. “The Lunchtime Mile is one of the simplest and most popular activities on Workplace Wellbeing Day and has now become a year round activity in many organisations,” he said.Almost six in ten employees (57 per cent) say their employers are already providing some health and wellbeing support, up from five in ten (47 per cent) when FDI first commissioned research into employee wellbeing in 2015. Healthy food choices appear to be coming more common with one in four employees saying their employer provides them compared to nearly one in seven just three years ago. According to Workplace Wellbeing Day supporter and consultant dietician, Sarah Keogh, “over 60 per cent of people in Ireland are classified as obese or overweight². Employers can make a difference – whether it is providing fresh fruit boxes at reception or healthy snacks at meetings, to healthier choices and portion sizes in the canteen”.The World Health Organisation maintains that the workplace is the ideal setting to promote health to a large proportion of the population, positively affecting the health of families and reaching further out into the wider community and society. This is borne out in the research.Almost half of the employees (49 per cent) saying that having the opportunity to exercise with colleagues during work hours would motivate me to be more physically active while 45% say that the lifestyles of their work colleagues can influence their lifestyle choices.Further details of how employers can get involved in this year’s event are available at fooddrinkireland.ie/wellbeingSee more news here BusinessNewsHealthLimerickLimerick employees urged to get a move onBy Staff Reporter – April 9, 2018 1910 WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads TAGSFood Drink IrelandIbeclimerickwellbeingworkforce Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” Email RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORcenter_img Advertisement Facebook Print Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clash Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Linkedin Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live WhatsApplast_img read more
