Health Promotion Service

A brief Summary of why you became a Healthy Workplace:

The Health Promotion Service set up their first workplace health working group back in 2008. 

Since then the working group have offered a wide range of taster sessions including sports and activities, complimentary therapies, arts and crafts and health awareness as a way of improving the health of our staff here at the Health Promotion Service.

The Workplace Health working group holds regular meetings and our aim is to continue to try and improve the health and well-being of our staff at the Health Promotion Service.

This year a team of staff from the Health Promotion Service entered into the Cornwall Beach Games pending an afternoon on Tolcarne Beach in Newquay. This proved to be a great team building event for our staff with the opportunity to meet other local organisations and businesses working towards their Workplace Health Award.

Staff Engagement

Companies with higher levels of staff engagement have 13% lower staff turnover and less than half the UK average sickness absence.

Top tip! No hiding from work email for employees

Companies need to set clear policies on acceptable use of work email, as well as regarding when to switch off - employees need to know it is OK to let work email that arrived after hours wait until the morning.
