Health & Wellbeing
The need for a health and wellbeing policy.
In 2005, the Department of Health, Department for Work and Pensions and Health and Safety Executive launched the health, work and wellbeing strategy. This document emphasises the importance of creating a healthy working environment and a workplace culture which promotes and supports health and wellbeing.
The health and wellbeing of employees is essential to the overall health and wellbeing of a business. In addition, the workplace is an important setting in which people can make small changes to their lifestyles to benefit their health and protect against illness such as coronary heart disease, diabetes, some forms of cancer and osteoporosis. A healthy lifestyle also helps people to recover more quickly from illness and contributes to good mental health, resulting in improved levels of concentration, alertness and ability to cope with everyday stresses and strains. In the workplace, this means reduced sickness absence, fewer accidents and injuries, lower staff turnover, better morale and improved productivity.
