The latest insights relating to health and well-being at work

This is the twentieth annual CIPD survey to explore issues of health, well-being and absence in UK workplaces. In 2018 the survey was rebranded (from the Absence Management survey to the Health and Well-being at Work survey) to reflect an increased focus on health and well-being policies and practices, although, as in previous years, it continues to monitor absence management trends, policy and practice. We hope that you find the research useful when considering your own health and wellbeing policies and practice.

This report includes valuable insights from over 1,000 HR professionals, enabling us to study how the landscape has developed over the previous year. This year we have brought the role of occupational health to the forefront, exploring how they can play a much larger role in a preventive approach to employee wellbeing.

This research covers:

  • Employee wellbeing
  • Evaluating health and well-being activity
  • Level of employee absence
  • Causes of absence
  • Managing absence
  • Presenteeism’ and ‘leaveism’
  • Work-related stress and mental health
  • The impact of technology on employee well-being
