Workplace Wellbeing Charter

What is it?

The Workplace Wellbeing Charter is a statement of intent, showing your commitment to the health of the people who work for you.

There is a growing body of evidence to show the financial benefits enjoyed by organisations that implement well-being programmes, including reduced sickness absence, improved productivity and reduced staff turnover.

Who is it for?

With employers and employees bearing the burden of sickness absence costs, and the economy losing the output of those who are not in work, it’s in everyone’s interests to improve the health and well-being of working age people. According to the Office of National Statistics 131 million days were lost due to sickness absences in the UK in 2013.
