It should come as no surprise that on average, full-time workers in America spend more than one-third of their day, five days per week at the workplace. What if considering your health was a natural part of your nine to five? According to a 2012 survey human resource departments in America reported the top 5 health concerns that employees had include:

  1. Obesity; 24%
  2. Stress & Other Mental Health Issues: 23%
  3. Lack of Exercise: 15%
  4. Chronic Disease: 11%
  5. High Blood Pressure: 10%

According to a GOOD infographic, both employers and employees are increasingly recognizing that it is possible to take simple wellness steps, like enhancing company culture or starting a walking club so that their productivity and overall happiness can be improved, but is this really happening in the workforce?

In my experience, my Company is sponsoring the activities, yet my increasing workload doesn’t lend itself in allowing me to join. Are you experiencing the same thing?
