Do you offer work place health checks for your staff?
An unhealthy and unhappy workforce can be costly:
Evidence shows that workplace health initiatives can deliver a wide range of benefits, to both employers and staff. Staff enjoy improved well being, and workplace health checks can even pick-up conditions before they cause symptoms. Employees working for firms that promote wellness are more likely to be engaged, and think positively of their employers.
British Heart Foundation research shows that employers who invest in appropriate and successful workplace health initiatives have the potential to see a return on investment of between £2 and £34 for every £1 spent. Typically, programmes that address overall health pay back over two to three years, while more targeted interventions - such as weight management, or smoking cessation - can be even quicker.
Did you know Salford City Council's Health Improvement Service can visit your workplace and conduct health checks for your staff?
The checks only take 30 minutes and the team can bring a fully equipped health bus on site, so no need for your staff to leave the workplace. There is a nominal charge for the service, however many of the follow on services (advice on stopping smoking, being active and eating healthier) are FREE.
