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.


Mind, a Mental Health Charity, released a report in May 2011 claiming that UK businesses could save £8 billion per year if they managed workplace stress properly. 

The survey also found that 41% of workers experience stress, making it more of a concern than personal finances, health and relationships. 

Stress & Absence - 2014

New research from OnePoll on behalf of life insurance provider Friends Life found that one UK employee in six (16%) called in sick because of stress in the past year (2013), at a cost to employers of more than £460 million in wasted wages per day.
