Workplace Health Checks

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.

Why invest in your workforces’ health?

Poor health and wellbeing in the working age population costs the UK over £100 billion each year. Furthermore, sickness absence is thought to cost over £10 billion with approximately 140 million working days lost every year.

Therefore, there is a need for employers to invest in health and wellbeing in a strategic and proactive way. A healthy and resilient workforce is more productive and profitable. As a result, efficiency, customer relations, team working loyalty, retention and sustainable performance all improve.

People in Sandwell spend more of their years in poor health in comparison to the national average. Some risk factors are genetic. However, others are factors that can be addressed. These include:

  • weight
  • physical activity
  • diet
  • smoking
  • blood pressure
  • cholesterol

How we can help you:

We have a team of professionally qualified health trainers. They come to your workplace and deliver health assessments to your eligible 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

Using these results, employees will be given practical, non-judgemental advice on how to improve their health and wellbeing. Where appropriate, our health trainers can refer employees to specific support services.

I am interested but don’t have time to organise this:

We can provide additional support through:

  • Communication messages to send out to staff promoting the 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.
