Keys To Healthier Employees

Posted:

Here's a memo to the boss: If you want healthier employees, give them a little flexibility.  A study of a large pharmaceutical company shows that employees who were given flexible work opportunities like job sharing, remote, telecommuting jobs, flextime, and/or a shorter work week schedule adopted healthier lifestyle habits.

The study led by researchers at Wake Forest University School of Medicine and published in The Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, says that flexibility in the workplace led to employees finding more time for physical activity, more restful sleep, and taking fewer sick days.
