FROM THE EDI­TOR

Sunday Tasmanian - - Body + Soul -

Work­ing at body+soul, well­be­ing is al­ways at the fore­front of our minds, both per­son­ally and pro­fes­sion­ally. As a re­sult, daily trips to the of­fice gym and tak­ing ad­van­tage of our com­pany’s health pro­grams are par for the course. But not ev­ery­one is as lucky when it comes to their em­ploy­ers sup­port­ing their health and well­be­ing. In a bid to dis­cover more, we teamed up with the experts at YouGov Galaxy on the b+s 2018 Work­life Sur­vey – a na­tion­wide poll that asked Aussies about their work well­be­ing: what do they want from their work­place to feel healthy and happy? What are their em­ploy­ers do­ing right, and what’s des­per­ately needed?

The re­sults were fas­ci­nat­ing, be­cause while there is a gen­eral con­sen­sus that em­ploy­ers should be pay­ing at­ten­tion to this area, more than half of those sur­veyed said their com­pa­nies had no for­mal health and well­be­ing poli­cies in place. And with stress now the most preva­lent health con­di­tion among work­ers, a lot more needs to be done to boost re­silience and morale. Find out all the de­tails below.

Else­where in this is­sue, we look at the sur­pris­ing things you prob­a­bly don’t know about com­mon med­i­ca­tion – like the fact that pink pills taste sweet or that grape­fruit juice can in­ter­fere with some drugs. Check out our re­port on page 6. Have a great week!
