Wellbeing at work - employers
Please note that our face to face programmes have been paused whilst COVID-19 lockdown restrictions are in place.
We are still supporting workplaces virtually over Microsoft teams, phone and email.
How can we help
Our Wellbeing MOTs are a great way to start by offering tailored support to your employees. Book an MOT day or week with us, where employees can discuss the following with a Wellbeing Advisor:
- Weight and Body Mass Index
- Alcohol intake
- Smoking Status
- General Health and Wellbeing
Currently our MOTs are run on Microsoft Teams or telephone if preferred. These are confidential 30 minute appointments. Employees also receive a summary of the session and any follow up resources in an E-mail.
Bespoke lifestyle talks
We can also offer your workplace a selection of interactive talks dependent on your employees' interest. These 1 hour long sessions are currently run on Microsoft Teams until we can visit workplace premises again.
Our qualified advisors have launched a number of new talks to address the pandemic and its impact on employee wellbeing.
You can now book the following sessions:
- Managing Stress & Building Resilience
- Anxiety Awareness
- Food & Mood
- Sleep Awareness
- Relax & Breathe
- Breaking Habits
- Menopause Awareness
- Stretch & Move
We can also develop any new workshops for you. Please E-mail us if you are interested in a specific topic.

Supporting the local business community
The Mid Sussex Wellbeing Hub has been a One Stop Shop for all things Health and Wellbeing for the last seven years with an extensive experience in supporting the local business community.
Our Workplace Health service provides a resource for local businesses to support sustained lifestyle changes amongst their employees to prevent future ill health.
See our workplace health video (YouTube - new window) which shows a local company's experience of working with us to improve workplace wellbeing.
Previous feedback from workplace health visits on premises:
“All the staff at PVL benefit from the wellbeing health checks. It is a great chance to talk through any issues that you may have or to find out more information on how to access support for things like losing weight and stopping smoking. We have them every 6 months and this allows us to track our results and set some goals like increasing the amount of water you drink and then when you see this reflected positively in your next set of results it feels great!”
PVL UK Executive Assistant to Nick Broom, CEO
“At Hurst College we are committed to the Health & Wellbeing of our Pupils and Staff, so were delighted to welcome back the Mid Sussex Well-being team to provide Work Place Health checks for staff. Last year 74 staff members participated in the programme and so far this year 60 staff members have signed up to attend. The Health Checks gave individuals a chance to learn their risk factors and to discuss their health and fitness goals, in a friendly and constructive way. An anonymised report produced by the Wellbeing Officer, Nick Hurley, gave the College insight into how they can build on their existing staff resources, focusing on healthy eating, hydration levels and exercise facilities. I would highly recommend this service to other Schools and Colleges.”

Other workplace feedback
"With regards to the three Wellbeing visits we received from your colleagues recently I would like to take this opportunity to say how well received their visits were by our staff. Your team where very warm and welcoming and a font of useful knowledge which lots of us took on board and there have been lots of conversations regarding types of food to be eating and fitness regimes to be started. I think everybody got a lot out of these sessions"
Elaine Eldridge at Lloyds Banking Group, Haywards Heath
"All staff have seen these checks as really positive and are keen to arrange some more dates later in the year. Since the wellbeing visit we have undertaken a step challenge (supplied staff with pedometers) as one of the factors which came from the workplace assessment was physical activity levels and some staff set an improvement within this area. We have also supplied the office staff with a fruit basket as some healthier alternatives for snacking."
