Our report Mind, Body, and Wallet: Workforce well-being in the pandemic era found that even though 3 in 4 working Americans believe that maintaining a healthy lifestyle is important, only 1 in 4 workers feel that they are successfully doing the things that support their physical health — like exercising or eating a healthy diet.1
While more than 3 in 5 companies report that they are doing a good job supporting employees’ physical health — encouraging fitness, weight management, and healthy eating habits — fewer than 2 in 5 employees say that their organization’s current benefits address their physical health well. Employers have an opportunity to build a resilient workforce by encouraging healthy habits and offering workplace benefits that promote physical well-being and prevent disability and illness.
Every year, around five percent of US employees will experience a short-term disability due to illness, injury, or pregnancy. In 2021, more than 2 out of 4 full-time US employees (54 percent) don’t have disability insurance. Platforms to help you manage the complicated legislation around employee leave, and benefits like disability insurance — which can help your employees to manage if they became sick or injured and were unable to work — can help keep your workforce prepared.
