Bupa proves IT staff to be better at lying than dieting

ComputerWeeklyStaff Profile: ComputerWeeklyStaff


For a long time IT professionals have been spoken of as the very zenith of amateur athleticism. But, alas, it is not so.

According to Bupa’s corporate healthcare assessment of the sector, one in 10 senior employees in IT admitted to smoking, while almost a quarter admitted to leading a sedentary lifestyle by failing to take exercise at least once a week.

Bupa found that 61% of all senior level IT employees had a high body mass index, scoring more than 25.

If the Bupa survey tells us anything we did not already know, it is that IT professionals are accomplished liars. Downtime does not believe for a second that only one in 10 IT staff smoke.
