Health and Wellbeing
We work in partnership with local businesses, occupational health providers and government agencies to reduce the cost of ill health and improve business performance.
The world of work has changed following COVID. Before 2020, we also knew that life expectancy and time at work increased meaning that employees are increasingly caring for their children and parents. The pressure to do more with less, in addition assessible technology means that employees hours are extended. Whilst this creates opportunity, is also causing increased burnout. Sickness absence costs the UK economy over 14 billion pounds a year. A proactive programme has known to reduce these costs as well as increase productivity.
In order to be effective the employee wellbeing programme must fit with each organisation and be embedded within the organisation's culture. A sound wellbeing strategy will commence with communication between employees and management. It will be developed by capable managers in consultation with staff. It will enhance the safe environment and build a foundation of equality. It will promote flexible working and sound health information campaigns. It will meet the HSE Stress Standards and provide sufficient support to balance mental and physical wellbeing using relevant experts such as Moonstir.
Examples our wellbeing packages are as follows:
Preparing an annual health and wellbeing plan to engage employees
Wellbeing Awareness training to HR and Managers
Identifying wellbeing champions, providing training and ongoing supervision
