Employers least concerned with the wellbeing of Gen Z 

Employers are more concerned about the health and wellbeing of baby boomers than they are about any other generation in the workplace, according to research from Group Risk Development (GRiD).

According to the research, baby boomers’ general lack of fitness caused by a non-active lifestyle and sedentary working was the biggest worry for employers, with 32 percent of respondents citing this as an area of concern. Only 23 percent of employers have concerns for Generation Z’s lack of fitness.

 

Living with long-term chronic illness or health conditions was the second biggest concern of employers for baby boomers (31 percent).

 

The research showed that baby boomers’ mental health was just as great a concern for employers, with 26 percent of employers were worried over boomers’ stress and anxiety relating to home life. This number fell to 17 percent when asked about Generation Z.

 

While the research was carried out prior to the COVID-19 lockdown, GRiD explained that it believes the stress and anxiety of employees will only have increased as the implications of the pandemic have taken affect.

 

Katharine Moxham, spokesperson for GRiD, said: “Whilst the baby boomer generation is the one that most concerns employers, it is important that all generations are supported, and across all areas of concern.”
