North/south wellbeing divide

A recent survey has revealed a national divide when it comes to employee views about workplace wellbeing.

Data from Legal & General Group Protection’s Wellbeing at Work Barometer shows that just 59% of SME employees in the north of England feel their employer actively looks after their wellbeing compared to 88% of their southern counterparts. Colin Fitzgerald, Distribution Director at Legal & General Group Protection, commented, “The need for workplace wellbeing is universal, yet our research shows that when it comes to wellbeing it appears that the age-old north/south divide is very much present.”
