Wellbeing at work
It's easy to promote health and wellbeing at work. Not only does it help staff be happier, more productive and increase attendance, the business has a better brand image, retention and recruitment.
Encouraging health and wellbeing in the workplace doesn't mean rounding up everyone in the office and going for a jog at lunchtime (unless that's what you all want). Health and wellbeing is lifestyle choices that help us look after ourselves at a physical, mental and emotional level.
