The survey was carried out by Weight Watchers who found that nearly 75 percent of the workers complained of not having enough time to exercise during work hours while a similar number said that they were too tired to exercise after clocking out of their workplace.

Weight Watchers Australasia Managing Director Joseph Saad said that support from employers is necessary for an increasingly overweight Australian workforce to trim down. "Employers must take responsibility for how work environments impact the health and wellbeing of staff. Long working hours and sedentary roles all contribute to an increasingly overweight population and action is needed now", Saad said.
