 “We have learned so much through the Cornwall Workplace Health Award Programme already, and are keen that we pass this learning on to our staff.  With many organisations already represented, we were surprised we haven’t got involved sooner as it’s so aligned to our overall ‘Wellbeing Ambition’ that working for the Environment Agency will improve health and wellbeing”
