The workplace health offer in Staffordshire

Workplace Health logoThroughout these workplace health webpages there is lots of information, advice and guidance that businesses can use to help improve their staff’s health and wellbeing. 

The pages cover a range of different health and wellbeing topics, giving details of specific resources that can be used to support action in that area. The resources include toolkits, local and national campaigns, tools, websites, training and support services. Take a look at the sections on the right for more information.

 


Where to start?

If you’re unsure about which area to focus on, then the ‘Foundation Level’ of the ‘Thrive at Work’ Workplace Wellbeing Awards Programme (which is run by the West Midlands Combined Authority), may be a good starting point.

This has been developed as an easy 5 step approach. It will help you to identify and understand the needs of both your employees and your organisation, assisting you to develop a workplace wellbeing action plan. On completion, you’ll even get a certificate and accreditation logo, to recognise the efforts your business has made to improve the wellbeing of your staff.
