Work Is More than a Paycheck for Most

A new CIGNA study shows that for most Americans, work means much more than a paycheck. Work is seen as an essential part of self-worth and emotional well-being.

One in five survey respondents say they love their jobs and would continue to work even if they won the lottery.

The findings are part of a series of CIGNA surveys on health and well-being in America.

Overall, 65 percent gave responses that indicated they "live to work" more than "work to live."

CIGNA, which sells disability insurance, also found that 62 percent of respondents said that if they were out of work due to an injury or illness, their top worry would be paying the bills.

Jodi Prohofsky, a CIGNA senior vice president, said the good news for employers is that people enjoy work and the satisfaction it brings.

"On the other hand," she added, "the economy's causing more stress and anxiety among workers, and we know that stress can often contribute to or lead to disabling illnesses." It's up to employers to help workers manage that stress, CIGNA concludes.
