Half of workers think wellbeing is overlooked by employers during recession

Half of UK workers believe their physical and mental wellbeing was ignored by their employer during the economic downturn, according to a new poll.

The survey, conducted by healthcare provider SimplyHealth, has suggested that this could store up problems for the future, with 45% of employees polled now saying they will start looking for a new job as the economy shows signs of recovering.

The findings were also at odds with what employers thought. While more than half agreed they had been too focused on surviving the recession to worry much about employee wellbeing, three-quarters did not expect their workers to jump ship as a result.
