Healthy staff means healthy businesses
Healthy, engaged workforces are what all successful businesses strive to achieve. We can help you maximise your workforces health and wellbeing – for no additional cost to your business.
Poor health and wellbeing in the working age population costs the UK over £100 billion each year. Sickness absence is estimated to cost over £10 billion with an estimated 140 million working days lost every year to sickness absence.
People in Sandwell spend more of their years in poor health in comparison to the national average. Some risk factors are genetic, but others are impacted by factors that can be addressed including weight, physical activity, diet, smoking, blood pressure and cholesterol.
The need for employers to invest in health and wellbeing in a strategic and proactive way is clear. A healthy, engaged and resilient workforce is more productive and profitable in terms of efficiency, customer relations, team working loyalty, retention and sustainable performance.
We have a team of professionally qualified health trainers who can come to your workplace and deliver health assessments to your staff.
Each health assessment should take no longer than 20 minutes and will involve:
• Calculation of BMI
• Body measurements such as height, weight and waist to hip ratio
• Blood pressure check
• Personalised assessment of current lifestyle habits
Based on these results employees will be given practical, non-judgemental, tailored advice and guidance on how they can improve their health and wellbeing. Where appropriate, our health trainers can refer employees to specific support services.
We can provide additional support through:
• Providing communication messages to send out to staff promoting health assessments
• Marketing material for staff
• Manage the booking of staff for their health assessments
This is a fantastic opportunity to invest in the health and wellbeing of your staff. Don’t miss out! Get in touch with Healthy Sandwell.
