Working Brits aim to stop brain taking the strain

Working Brits aim to stop brain taking the strain
 
Regular five minute breaks should be introduced to keep Britains work force more productive according to a new study* released today.
 
Researchers identified that although popular employee benefits, such as private medical insurance and flexi-time were the highest choice, one in four or seven million workers would like regular five minute breaks away from their workstations or desk to help their health and wellbeing.
 
And its not just messages about avoiding the brain taking the strain, the value of good nutrition in terms of supporting health and wellbeing among workers seem to be understood with healthy food and drink being available at work as top choice for (30%) workers.
 
Free fruit is another popular choice for things that bosses can do to support employee wellbeing with one in four (25%) voting it as their first choice.
 
Dan Doherty, chief executive of Employee Benefits PR experts, Cadence Market Strategy said:  We all know the benefits of taking short breaks, but this just shows that employers could do more to encourage formal regular breaks to help reduce stress in the workplace and improve productivity.
 
The Annual Attitudes to Healthcare Study brings together a range of research which will be released throughout each year and will culminate in an annual report with specific recommendations for employers, employees and product and service providers. Service and product providers can contribute to the study and more information can be found at www.theBestWorkplace.co.uk
