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.

Employee Feedback

"As a company BT puts the Health and Wellbeing of its employees extremely high on its list of priorities and at the Consumer Sales Call Centre in Truro we’re very pleased that our work in this area has been recognised by a gold award.  Initiatives that we’ve spearheaded as a result of our involvement in the scheme have included workshops to encourage healthy eating and stopping smoking as well as promoting the use of our on-site gym.   Working towards and achieving the Healthy Workplace Gold Award has been an extremely rewarding process.  The assessment process has provided us with a framework to recognise the actions and activities that are already in place as well as to identify areas in which additional activity could take place"- Tracey Camps, BT Consumer Sales Truro.
