How Workplaces Are Harming The Well-being Of Employees

New research from Microsoft UK has indicated that many companies are adopting unhealthy work habits that are having a negative impact on the wellbeing and personal lives of their employees. Click To Tweet

Out of 2,000 respondents, the study found that 30% of British workers regularly sacrifice their personal lives for work, while 8 out of 10 workers have struggled to focus at home due to work pressure.

The report also found that 86% of Brits have felt anxious due to pressure from work, while 87% have trouble switching off. Additionally, 79% have experienced feelings of failure. 

In order to combat these issues, British employees are making it clear that flexible work options can help boost their work life balance, but few feel that they are in a position to take advantage of such policies. Of the 50% of UK workers that are offered flexible working, 35% say they need an official reason to take advantage of this option.

The study also found that 23% of organizations implement initiatives to boost employee wellbeing and 53% of respondents disagree that their company offers training that encourages workers to embrace a healthy lifestyle.

“The success and wellbeing of people and business go hand in hand. Encouraging time to unplug and to invest in re-energising activities is an important part of any thriving business,” said Abby Hubbard, co-founder of Work Well Being. “Organisations that understand and act on this will continue to adapt, innovate and outperform those that don’t.”
