Delhi employees more satisfied than other metros, survey shows

New Delhi: Employees working in Delhi are more satisfied as compared to other metro cities, says the ‘360 Well- Being Score’ online survey conducted on the state of workplace health and wellness in India.

As per the survey, 51 per cent of employees working in the Capital are happy and less stressed at workplaces.

The survey sampled 2,633 individuals working full time, part time or were self-employed and were living in either metro cities, including New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Kolkata and Chennai or non-metro cities, including Lucknow, Vizag, Ahmedabad, Pune and Surat in September.

As compared to 66 per cent employees in metro cities, 75 percent employees residing in non-metro cities felt they had little work-related stress.

“The survey is intended to provide employers with valuable insights into their employees’ attitudes toward health and well-being. We believe that better overall health of employees clearly translates to higher productivity and positivity at the workplace.

Workplace health and wellness programs can help improve overall employee health and build higher employee engagement, in turn lowering costs associated with health care, absenteeism and employee turn-over,” explained

Sandeep Patel, Cigna TTK CEO and managing director, who presented the survey findings on Thursday.

Of the people surveyed, 54 per cent were male and 46 per cent were female. In terms of age, 20 per cent of respondents were 25-29, 42 per cent were 30-39, 23 per cent were 40- 49 and 15 per cent were over 50 years old.

When it comes to prioritising work over having children, women’s reasons are different depending on their age, the survey said.

For women aged 25-29, the reason for delaying having children is due to pressure from work (32 per cent).
