Did you know?

 
Sleep

For Your Organization
Disturbed sleep is associated with a greater risk of health problems and increased sickness absence in working populations.

Researchers have also found that people who had insomnia were likely to be 6.1% less productive and showed significantly lower scores related to attention, decision-making, memoiry and motivation at work.

 
 

For Your People
Sleep plays a crucial role in your mental and physical health.

Lack of sleep or lack of good quality sleep can lead to detrimental effects on your health, like weight gain, depression and a less effective immune system.

When you've lost hours of sleep the only thing that will make you feel yourself again is recovering those hours in bed, in addition to your usual night's rest.

 
Stress

For Your Organization
Stress is the second most commonly reported work-related condition representing an estimated 30 lost working days per year per person.

This makes stress, depression and anxiety some of the largest contributors to the overall estimated annual days lost from
work-related ill-health nationwide. When you catch yourself beginning to think negatively there are a number of things you can do to see a situation in a more positive light. People who question their negative thinking are more likely to form positive relationships with others, set realistic goals and be more open to experiences.

 
 

For Your People
Support has been shown to help people feel less stressed and more on top of things. Talk to someone – it’s an important
way of identifying how you’re feeling, and exploring possible routes of action.

 
Physical activity

For Your Organization
Researchers have found that annual sickness absence is lower for people who exercise regularly.

People who don’t exercise:

  • Have a 46% greater absence rate than those who exercise once a week
  • Are 51% more likely to be absent for seven days a year or more than those exercising twice a week
 
 

For Your People
Health experts recommend at least 30 minutes of moderate activity five days a week. You can do it all at once or do shorter bursts of exercises – it all counts! Moderate activity is any activity that increases your heart rate and makes you slightly breathless. This can include anything from walking briskly, dancing, playing with your kids, or doing housework.

Increasing your activity levels can add over 3 ½ years to your life.

 
Nutrition

For Your Organization
Employees with poor eating habits are at risk of developing diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol levels, all of which
can lead to lost productivity at work.

Health risks associated with poor eating habits contribute to almost 25% of increased medical care costs. Consider that employees at risk of cardiovascular disease alone have medical care costs that are up to 128% higher than those who are not at risk.

 
 

For Your People
A faster eating rate is related to higher weight.

It is recommended that you try to eat a diet which provides 15-30% of your total calories from fat.

Experts suggest it takes 8 – 10 tries before you learn to like a new food.

Food products labelled ‘lite’ or ‘light’ must have at least 30% less fat or calories as a standard version of that product.
