Canadian workforce increasingly concerned about developing chronic diseases

Abstract

Growing concerns about developing chronic diseases, increasing illness from workplace-related stress, and knowledge gaps about health risks are challenging both Canadian employees and employers. To mitigate these threats to employee health and organizational productivity, leading employers have developed strategies and tactics to improve knowledge of prevention, and increase participation in wellness programs. These findings and others are drawn from the 11th edition of The sanofi-aventis Healthcare Survey released May 13, 2008. The national survey of 1,500 health benefits plan members is the most comprehensive research to examine the attitudes and preferences of Canadians about their employer-sponsored health benefit plans. The survey also explores employee perceptions about the role of the public healthcare system and the workplace.
