Here are some ideas from Healthworks staff:
Ken: In 30 years we’ll all know our DNA, and know what we’re most likely to die of. We’ll have a microchip inserted which tracks whether or not we do certain activities or eat right, and if we don’t then we’ll have to pay extra for insurance.
Sonja: In 30 years we will all wear devices that track our activity, food and alcohol consumption. We will be penalised financially for a sedentary/unhealthy lifestyle and rewarded for an active/healthy one. Employers will use this data to employ healthier employees. All food will be organic and cheap to buy. Trans fats will no longer exist other than on the black market.
Jill: In 30 years’ time corporate wellness policies will be compulsory for all business organisations (legislated along the same lines as Work Health and Safety is now); The government will be so worried about the cost to Medicare of obesity, diabetes, smoking & drinking addictions etc that they will insist on business organisations playing their part in educating people about their health;
Katherine: We will all be wearing activity trackers which will monitor not only our activity but our heart rates, stress levels, sleep patterns, blood pressure, glucose and cholesterol. Health insurance company premiums will vary based on your overall health score.
Kylie: In 30 years, knowledge workers won’t need to sit in cubicle offices, because we won’t need to type on a desk-based computer – our devices will be wireless and voice-activated. We will walk, stand and move naturally throughout the day, in meetings, informal discussions, and even our independent work.
There will be a backlash against the ultra-monitored, patriarchal mode of health management, and the new generation of employees will demand complete autonomy over how, when and where they manage their health at work.
For all types of employees, mindfulness, meditation, yoga and relaxation breaks will be the norm, interspersed throughout the day.
