Employees engaged in their work have healthier habits

American employees who are engaged in their work and workplace are more likely to report a healthier lifestyle than their counterparts who are less engaged. According to a Gallup poll, these workers eat healthier, exercise more frequently, and consume more fruits and vegetables.

According to the findings, “engaged employees are deeply involved in and enthusiastic about their work.” In prior research Gallup had found that employee engagement is positively correlated with better health and that engaged employees are less likely to be obese and to have chronic diseases.

The reason for this link is not entirely clear. It is possible, says Gallup, that workers who lack healthy habits are more prone to illness. That reduces their chance to be engaged at work.

Gallup research also shows that the way leaders manage can significantly influence employee engagement. That in turns affects worker health and the bottom line.
