Ian Wylie: What issues keep business leaders awake at night when they think about the health of their employees?
Nick Bacon: Big demographic changes. We know about the ageing workforce, about the increase in contract work and insecure work, about underemployment and financial stress. The big question for me is, what are employers doing to help employees cope with those issues? What can they do to try and ensure that employees have more satisfying working lives and more security at work, and beyond work?
