Image: Cisco found active workers perform better

New research from networking solutions firm Cisco UK and Ireland has found that the vast majority (90 per cent) of employees believe that "healthier workforces" benefit businesses.

The Health and Wellbeing survey involved 501 middle managers in part or full time employment, a further 89 per cent believe a fit and active employee performs better at work.

However, only 15 per cent of employees said their businesses had made changes to improve health and wellbeing as a result of major sports events taking place this summer.

A mere 13 per cent of firms were said to be running sport-inspired activity this summer, and just 38 per cent said their workplace was promoting team building through exercise.

Cisco UK and Ireland head of HR Phoebe Leet said: "2012 is a phenomenal year for sport and other large events, and I would urge companies across the UK to build on their existing health and HR policies in the coming months.

"This year is a fantastic opportunity for businesses to encourage and inspire employees to be proactive about their health in the long term which could help build a brilliant future for both their employees and their business."

The research was conducted throughout December by Vision Critical.
