Employers might be able to cut health and disability claims by finding ways to give workers time to eat better and exercise more.[@@]

Researchers at ComPsych Corp,, Chicago, have published data supporting that conclusion in a report on an informal survey of employees at 1,000 ComPsych client employers.

Although 70% of the employees agreed that they are in poor health and 24% admitted that they are very overweight, only 57% said they exercise. Only 13% of the survey participants said they believe their workplaces support access to exercise and healthy food.

About 58% of the survey participants said they were too tired, too stressed or too short on time to exercise, according to the ComPsych researchers.
