Hongkongers want employers to support health and wellbeing amidst high inflation

A Cigna report showed that 72% of respondents complained that being healthy is expensive.

Amidst health benefits, the majority of Hong Kong employees want support from employers to have a healthier life, Cigna said in its latest report.

About 72% of respondents complained that it is very expensive to stay healthy whilst 66% said they wish they had more support from employers.

A majority seek private health insurance plans (73%), followed by flexible time off or work arrangements at 58% and mental health support at 28%.

About one in five respondents said they have subsidized gym memberships, which may be the most traditional form of health support from employers.

“As Hong Kong continues to navigate economic uncertainties such as rising inflation and costs of living, the Vitality Index results for Hong Kong show that it is imperative for employers to support their employees by adopting a holistic approach that can address their needs," Cigna Hong Kong CEO Jonathan Spiers.
