Wilson James HR Business Partner Jeanette Dean contributed a piece to The Balance Approach on why businesses should build internal health and wellbeing programmes.
My aim, which I make no secret of, is that we become an “employer of choice”. One of the most important ways to do this, yet one which is very often overlooked, is the need to have a workplace Health and Wellbeing programme.
Recently ACAS (Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service) has shown that there is a growing recognition of the importance of Health and Wellbeing programme both inside and outside workplace.
As well as this, a recent government review of evidence on employee wellbeing and its potential impact on workplace performance, suggests improvement in wellbeing will result in improved workplace performance, as well as employees feeling valued and boosting morale.
