Employees with workplace flexibility have healthier lifestyle habits
Date:12/10/2007

e data was analyzed to determine if lifestyle behaviors differ between employees with different levels of perceived flexibility and to identify if changes in flexibility over a one-year time period predicted changes in health behavior. The study focused on frequency of physical activity, engagement in stress management programs, participation in health education activities, healthful sleep habits, and self-appraised overall lifestyle.

Overall, the results showed that nearly all the health behaviors examined in this study were associated with perceived flexibility, Grzywacz said. Although further research is needed, these results suggest that flexibility programs that are situated within a broader organizational commitment to employee health may be useful for promoting positive lifestyle habits.
