Workplace Health

Workplace health

Good employers know that a healthy and well-motivated workforce will have a positive impact on the productivity and effectiveness of their business. Those who prioritise workplace health are less likely to suffer staff sickness and absence and can also reap the benefits of having a reputation as a ‘great place to work’.

Our comprehensive workplace health service focuses on improving the health and wellbeing of employees in conjunction with organisational change.

We conduct a full assessment of an organisation’s workplace health needs as it is important to understand the current level of engagement and highlight any gaps. Based on the assessment’s findings, we design, implement and evaluate a bespoke health and wellbeing programme for the organisation. Elements could include:

Health and wellbeing interventions

Our approach is designed to ensure that the specific interventions chosen are geared towards the needs of the organisation and its employees. We focus on areas such as leadership development, sickness and absence management, awareness of alcohol and drug abuse, smoking, mental health and stress, healthy eating and physical activity.

Public health campaigns

We support employers to plan and deliver public health campaigns within their organisation. This includes the selection of specific campaign/s that meet the organisations’ identified needs and the development of a campaign strategy including detailed communications and delivery plans.

Training

As a Royal Society of Public Health registered centre we can deliver a number of health and wellbeing related qualifications including Understanding Health Improvement, Encouraging a Healthy Weight and Healthy Eating and Understanding Mental Wellbeing.

Workplace health champions

Employees can volunteer to be Workplace Health Champions and provide support to their colleagues to improve their health. We can provide the RSPH Level 2 Understanding Health Improvement qualification for Workplace Health Champions and act as a central point of contact, providing on-going access and support via telephone, online and network meetings.

All Workplace Health Champions will be provided with a support package which includes; ideas of workplace health challenges, resources, ways to engage colleagues, links to network of champions, informal meetings and is designed by our team of experts.

Workplace health checks

Our workplace health checks are tailored to meet the specific needs of you and your workforce. Trained nurses or health coaches in either a mobile unit or designated space carry out checks; employees can ‘drop in’ or be assigned an appointment time.
