FINDINGS

For the first-ever Thailand’s Healthiest Workplace by AIA Vitality, we are glad to see high participation, as this indicates that organisations in Thailand see value in improving their employees’ health and wellbeing. A total of 146 organisations participated and 7,539 employees in Thailand have been surveyed. We hope that the findings and recommendations from this inaugural Thailand’s Healthiest Workplace by AIA Vitality initiative will give employers useful insights towards improving or initiating their health promotion strategies and plans to create a healthier and more productive environment for their people. We will be looking forward to working together with organisations, industries and key stakeholders to create a more productive and engaging workplace that can help Thailand’s workforce live healthier, longer, better lives.
