We are therefore proudly working with our partners at Active Together, to support workplaces across North West Leicestershire to become happier and healthier. 

Why should our company be thinking about health and wellbeing?

Public Health England report that in the UK, 131 million working days are lost each year due to sickness absence, with the average employer  spending £9bn each year on sick pay and associated costs. To make it worse, an unhealthy workforce is even less productive! Read more about the effects an unhealthy workforce can have now.

So, can your company afford to keep paying these costs? 

What can we do to help?

The journey to a healthier and happier workforce starts with a Workplace Health Needs Assessment (WHNA), provided by our partners. This employee health and wellbeing survey is a process of gathering information about a group of employees, to shape future investment to improve health and wellbeing. The survey includes questions around; healthy eating, physical activity, smoking and alcohol awareness, sleep, and stress management. 

This is the best way to start evaluating the current health of your workforce and once data from this assessment has been captured, extensive analysis by Active Together provides key insight from the responses that will help a business to understand its priority health and wellbeing areas. Further support is then provided to the business to create a bespoke action plan based on the identified needs.  

*This survey is accessible for companies in the North West Leicestershire of any size.

We want to take action, so what next?
