The latest round of a project exploring the wellbeing of those working in the fitness and active leisure sector has been launched.
The Workforce State of Mind Survey is now entering into its third year. Last year, The Survey, which is anonymous, reported that 57 per cent of people working in fitness and active leisure have experienced a mental health issue in the last 12 months, up from 53 per cent the year before.
Only 11 per cent say that anybody at work checks in on their mental health, down from 19 per cent in 2021.
This year, the survey will benefit from the official support of Active IQ, Alliance Leisure, Les Mills and Myzone. The survey is owned and managed by Workplace Mental Wealth and backed by The Chartered Institute for The Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA).
Lindsey Simpson, Co-founder of Workplace Mental Wealth, said: “As we enter the third year of The Survey, it will be interesting to see how individuals in the sector are faring and what employers are doing to support their teams.”
The survey will go live on the Workplace Mental Wealth website in January 2023.
