Report: Employees Focused on Weight Loss in 2012
Forty-three percent of employees now say that weight loss is their primary wellness concern, according to ComPsych Corporation’s Tell It Now report. This is a 10 percent increase from the 2011 report. The report also listed other top concerns as exercise (20%), stress (18%), and healthy eating (10%).
“For years, weight loss has been a wellness concern for many Americans, and it’s reassuring to know that many of us understand that weight loss is the key to improved well-being,” says Amanda Carlson-Phillips, vice president of nutrition and research at Core Performance. “To improve their wellness offerings, companies need to address these concerns and help employees reach their goals by encouraging exercise and healthy eating.”
