When it comes to health issues, you and your colleagues are more worried about losing weight than anything else -- even stress, according to a Tell It Now poll recently released by ComPsych Corporation. Almost 40 percent of the employees surveyed said that weight loss was their top health concern this year, while only 23 percent said stress was their most important health issue.

"With more and more individuals slipping into the overweight category, it's no surprise that weight management is a top issue this year," said Dr. Richard A. Chaifetz, chairman and CEO of ComPsych. "Stress levels are also unusually high, given the additional workloads many have taken on during a recovering economy."
