Health Promotion Service, Redruth

At the Health Promotion Service, we have set up a workplace health working group, conducted two health at work questionnaires and have been trying to look at how we can improve the health of our staff!

We have a great team and to date we now have a ‘Kernow Building Gardening Club’, ‘A Choir’ and have organised a wide range of activities, taster sessions and events including:

  • Healthy Lunchtime Walks
  • Step-o-meter Challenge
  • Honesty Snack Box
  • Physical Activity Sessions -
  • Massage & Reflexology sessions
  • Introducing a Mentoring Scheme
  • Love Yourself, Look after Your Heart
  • Active Travel Days
  • Delivery of  'Healthy Boxes' weekly
  • Craft sessions
  • Obtained two pool bikes
  • Dedicated Health at Work notice board
  • Entered a team in the 2009 Race for Life!

We hold regular workplace health working group meetings and our aim is to continue to try and improve staff health and well-being here at Health Promotion.

I was in my previous post for nearly six years and there was no workplace health programme at all.

When I started here and found what is available to staff, often delivered by other staff, I was really impressed and have been trying all sorts of things!

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.
