1 in 2 would consider leaving employers who don’t support wellbeing. According to the 2016 ‘Behaviour & Attitudes’ national survey of employees, Irish employers should encourage their staff to be healthier. The study also reveals that employee wellbeing is crucial to staff retention and productivity levels. Seven in ten (69%) employees surveyed are more likely to stay longer with employers who show an interest in their health and wellbeing while half would consider leaving employers who don’t. The survey of almost 1000 employees was commissioned by the Nutrition & Health Foundation (NHF) in 2016.
The results of the ‘Behaviour & Attitudes’ study highlights the important role for employers in improving their employees’ health. Three quarters of those surveyed say employers should encourage their staff to be healthier.
Commenting on the results, Small Firms Association Director, Patricia Callan said “Over 4 million days are lost in Ireland due to absenteeism by small businesses alone³. As this research shows, employers of all sizes and from all sectors are doing a lot already. But employers should do more to promote these initiatives and encourage staff to get involved.”
