Wellbeing at work - employers

Supporting the local business community

Our Workplace Health service provides a resource for local businesses to support employees to make small, realistic lifestyle changes to prevent future ill health.

Research has found that businesses who support employee wellbeing see improved engagement, retention, and productivity. We deliver support at your workplace, from Advisors trained in lifestyle and behaviour change.

Our free consultations support employees to identify small changes that can make a big difference such as losing weight, stopping smoking, reducing alcohol or getting more active, and can signpost onto other services where appropriate.

See our workplace health video (YouTube - new window) which shows a local company's experience of working with us to improve workplace wellbeing.

Wellbeing MOTs

Our Wellbeing MOTs offer tailored support to your employees with a confidential, 30-minute appointment to discuss health and wellbeing topics including:

  • Weight and Body Mass Index
  • Metabolic age
  • Diet 
  • Hydration
  • Sleep

We offer full or half day visits and provide each workplace with an anonymised summary report of the MOT results, with any observations or recommendations for change to benefit the workforce.

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."
