Abstract:This bachelor’s thesis assesses whether or not innovativeness of an individual can be predicted by modifiable lifestyle-related health risk factors. The health risk factors in this study are physical activity and obesity. Previous studies indicate that these health risk factors have an influence on work performance. Higher scores of physical activity was found to have a positive effect on overall work performance and obesity had a negative effect on work loss days. This study tested these health risk factors against innovativeness by using correlation and regression analysis to see whether or not a significant relation exists. The data for this thesis was collected by sending out a questionnaire to individuals older than 30 years and with a higher education, 99 responses were collected. No evidence was found that physical activity or obesity had a significant relationship with innovativeness.
