Hospitality workers face a shorter lifespan after retirement, compared to employees from other sectors, according to a survey of the UK's largest companies.
However, InterContinental Hotels bucks the trend with its employees living on average 88 years, the fourth highest total in the FTSE 100.
The findings will be revealed in a survey by Pension Capital Strategies (PCS), a division of insurers Jardine Lloyd Thompson, set to be published this week, reports the Financial Times.
Charles Cowling, managing director at PCS, said: "Of course, your job and your life expectancy are related.
"It may simply be because some jobs are better paid than others and life expectancy is linked to wealth. It may be because some jobs are more demanding than others."
