It is important that the workplace is a supportive and inclusive work environment. High levels of stress can disturb our hormone levels, which can impact our weight and lead to further mental and physical health issues related to obesity.
That's why we all need better policies, respect and action to build healthy workplaces for people living with obesity.
Employers have an unprecedented opportunity to create healthier environments in formal, flexible or hybrid workplaces. It is not only about the physical workspace, but practical and emotional support.
