Wellness in the Workplace
Southern Cross Health Society and Business New Zealand's nationwide study of 113 employers, with 116,000 employees, found that 80 per cent of workplaces did not cater for the ageing workforce and only a third provided health insurance for their staff.
The survey, titled Wellness in the Workplace, has found stress levels in big businesses, defined as those with over 50 staff, rose by 35.6 per cent, compared with 23.3 percent for smaller businesses. The top reasons for stress and anxiety increasing were general workload, relationship issues, long hours, pressure to meet targets and financial concerns (via NZ Herald).
