A brief summary of why we became a healthy workplace:

We took the decision to become a healthy workplace a number of years ago, when sickness levels were on the rise and we wanted to do something positive to counteract this. Since then, the healthy workplace initiative has gone from strength to strength, and we’ve seen sickness levels decrease significantly.  Colleagues have become more and more supportive of the healthy workplace initiative and it’s become imbedded as part of our corporate culture.

Recent health and well being activities on offer (this year):

As well as the usual round of initiatives such as free health checks and flu jabs, we’ve undertaken a “Life Cycle” event where staff pushed themselves for    Leukaemia and Lymphoma     research, raising over £1,300 with a sponsored    cycle challenge. The healthy workplace team decided to support the work of this charity      following a young colleague’s    diagnosis and battle with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia. The event was supported by the Cornish Pirates and a static bike for the challenge was kindly donated by Carn Brea Leisure Centre.

Plans/aims for the next year:

We recently undertook a survey to understand what healthy workplace initiatives staff would like to see, so will be working through the results of this with the healthy workplace team  to see what we can make possible. We will continue to offer things like our Simply Health cash back scheme, health checks, discounted bike purchase scheme, flu jabs and various training  and awareness   raising opportunities.

Weíre very pleased with the difference our healthy workplace initiative is making to the lives of colleagues, whether itís the convenience of being able to get a free flu jab in the office or a life change implemented after a free health check rings a warning bell for someone. Our people are our most valuable resource so itís important to us that they are looked after.
