The Southern Cross Healthy Futures Report has been designed to explore what’s on the minds of New Zealanders at a time when understanding health and wellbeing has never been more important.

Together with research partner Colmar Brunton, Southern Cross spoke to more than 2,000 Kiwis to get insights into how they see and value different aspects of their lives when it comes to health and wellbeing.

This business edition reports on data from the Healthy Futures research relating to workplace health and wellbeing. From the total sample, 1,450 employees were spoken to from a cross-section of New Zealand’s industries including those in white collar and blue collar employment.

The insights cover the spectrum of occupations including senior executives, government officials, clerical, sales, frontline essential workers, farmers/labourers, skilled/semi-skilled workers and people working in manufacturing and trades.
