Workplace wellbeing relates to all aspects of working life, from the quality and safety of the physical environment, to how workers feel about their work, their working environment and the culture of their workplace.
We are approved providers for the Workplace Wellbeing Charter and can provide advice and assessment for accreditation to the Award.
The Award is an opportunity for employers to demonstrate their commitment to the health and wellbeing of their staff. Research shows that workplace health initiatives have a positive impact on health outcomes for staff and produce a financial benefit to the business through reduced sickness absence, improved productivity and reduced staff turnover.
The Workplace Wellbeing Charter provides a set of nationally recognised standards for an organisation to measure their performance in eight key areas:
- health and safety
- sickness and absence management
- alcohol and drug abuse
- mental health
- healthy eating
- physical activity
The Workplace Wellbeing Charter is awarded at three levels: Commitment; Achievement and Excellence. Each level has different standards to be achieved. Some, or all, will be relevant to you depending on the size and direction of your organisation.
More information about the Workplace Wellbeing Charter including access to a self-assessment tool and details about the formal accreditation process is available from the Commercial and Business Support Team.
