A new study carried out by The American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine discovered that many employees are unaware that they may have hypertension and would also not know how to control it.
The team found that on-site initiatives could be of real benefit to workers as well as their managers, as they are likely to improve overall health too, Personnel Today reports.
It may be especially pertinent for businesses employing people in customer service or sales jobs, as they are likely to spend long periods of time at their desks on the phone.
However, it may also be necessary to consider anti-hypertension tactics for homeworkers, as a Modis poll recently found many feel chained to their desks for fear that they may look as though they are not doing as much work as their office-based counterparts.
The new study suggested bringing in a cafeteria with healthy foods, exercise facilities and blood pressure testing stations to target hypertension, which affects 30 per cent of people in England.
