Divided Together Report from Westfield Health

23rd June 2020

At Westfield Health, we’ve been looking at ways we can support businesses as their people return to a ‘new normal’ at work.

This week we’ve published our ‘Divided Together’ report which Dave Capper, our CEO, shared with Ian King live on Sky News. We’ll be continuing the conversation with a live webinar on 18th June and would like to invite you to join us.

Divided Together Report

Our in-depth, 2,000-person study looks at the physical and mental wellbeing of the country, with a focus on our changing experiences, attitudes and expectations of work. The report has identified that the UK workforce is divided by their lockdown experiences and the workplace will be one of the first places to feel the consequences of those divides.

Businesses will need to focus on bridging these tensions and rifts, as well as increased expectations around wellbeing and ways of working to return to productivity.

Key findings include:

  • 35% believe furloughed workers have less to worry about
  • 66% of furloughed parents and 56% of all furloughed workers report a negative impact on mental health
  • 51% of workers at home think their colleagues are doing less than they say they are
  • 46% believe that others are using their kids as an excuse for doing less work
  • Less than a third of home workers want to go back to the office in July
  • 28% want more support from their employer
