A brief summary of why we became a healthy workplace

We have been keen to promote a healthy workplace for a number of years and Cornwall Health Promotion Service has inspired us and provided a framework for moving forward

 

              

 

Recent health and well being activities

  • Training programme for managers to increase awareness of mental health symptoms

  • Alcohol awareness campaign

  • Smoking cessation campain

  • Sunscreen advice

  • Promotion of local fitness centres

  • Supporting local charities through active involvement (e.g. decorating a local outreach centre)

 

Plans/aims for the next year

Weight and fitness campaigns, focussing on diet, exercise, lifestyle, and generally choosing well.

We hope to establish health and wellbeing champions across the site to lead a variety of fitness activities.

Achieving the Silver Healthy Workplace Award in our first year has raised the profile of health and wellbeing across the business

Employee Feedback

"I am lucky to work for an organisation whose management has whole-heartedly supported me throughout the process of obtaining the Healthy Workplace Awards.  The Directors have never said ‘no’ and it is great to know that my employer is interested in everyone’s well-being at work.  Not only have they approved my initiatives but they have also led by example and joined in some of them too.  They have committed, what are for us, scarce resources and agreed more flexible working policies as well as offering support to staff who may struggle with work or with personal problems through solid employment policies and management techniques"- Louise Mallas, YMCA Cornwall
