Water cooler food for thought

Do you and your co-workers talk about your goals for the new year as you're enjoying your work breaks? If so, the following results may not be that surprising. The good news is, we've got some practical solutions for your to reach those goals.

ComPsych survey on new year's resolutions

Results from ComPsych's Tell It Now poll, released today, indicate that employees are unsurprisingly concerned about managing their weight but that stress management is also a top priority.

Thirty-nine percent of employees polled say losing weight is their top health concern while 26 percent indicate that stress has them most worried. This is up from 18 percent in the 2012 poll.

“Weight loss is, not surprisingly, the number one health concern this year,” says Dr. Richard A. Chaifetz, chairman and CEO of ComPsych. “What is significant is that many more employees are aware of stress as a major contributor to health problems. Corporate wellness programs that address both physical and emotional health are uniquely suited to help employees make lasting lifestyle changes, which will ultimately reduce health and disability costs while improving productivity.”

ComPsych is the world's largest provider of employee assistance progams, including HealthyGuidance, a build-to-suit health and wellness program for organizations. If your company doesn't have a wellness program in place, consider putting ComPsych on their radar.
