More than two-thirds (69 per cent) of employees think their employers should do more to help prevent disease, illness and injury, according to the 2013 Sanofi Canada Healthcare Survey.

“We spend a considerable amount of our day… on-site in our workplace, and we all want to feel well, feel better and I think we’re looking for our employers to really help try to support and keep us healthy,” said Theresa Rose, director of group product management at Medavie Blue Cross in Moncton, N.B.
