On a more practical note – It is widely recognised that exercise is one of the most effective ways to combat stress. In 2009/10, an estimated 9.8 million working days were lost through work-related stress. On average, each person suffering from work-related stress took an estimated 22.6 days off in 2009/10. This equates to an annual loss of 0.42 days per worker. (Source HSE web site).
Obesity affects production through increased sickness absence, but also as a result of premature death. It can be estimated that approximately 4% of claims result directly from the consequences of obesity. This equates to some 2.6 million days of work lost per year, or a potential cost of lost work days of around £195 million. This figure excluded those associated with short term sickness absence, although it has been shown that people with BMI greater than 30 have a 51% higher short and long-term sickness absences than those in the normal weight range.

Traditionally businesses have not engaged successfully with the fitness and wellbeing of their staff, probably due to the expense or lack of services available to do so. If they have it has been a very costly exercise in providing expensive corporate gym membership, and often only for the senior teams.
