Why is Corporate Wellness Important?

The average weight of the population in Ireland is rising fast with >60% classified as overweight or obese (Slan Report, 2007). We spend 60% of our life at work and we consume at least a third of our daily food intake while there (BDA UK). For these reasons it it seen that employers and health insurers need to devise coordinated approaches to keeping workers fit and managing their weight “in order to stem skyrocketing health care costs and improve public health.” (Northeast Business Group, 2013)
