Survey: Boss’s Health Worries Many Workers

Arlington, Va. — June 6

Amid widespread stress in the workplace, many workers have had cause to worry about their boss’ health, according to a survey by management consultants Healthy Companies International.

Seventeen percent reported that they were at least somewhat worried about the health of their boss during the last year, and 4 percent said they were “very worried.”

Men were somewhat more likely than women — 20 percent vs. 15 percent — to express concern for their boss’ health, as were employees earning $25,000 or less — 23percent — as well as those who have a college degree or greater.

The poll of 509 workers was conducted May 16-20 by International Communications Research, Media, PA, on behalf of Healthy Companies International.
