Healthy Workplace Award Review & Refresh

Date: 31 Dec 2012

Healthy Workplace Award Review & Refresh

This summer the Workplace Health Coorindator has been working on reviewing and refreshing the Healthy Workplace Award Criteria online. It is now Live via the website - www.behealthyatwork.org!

4 new core criteria have been added to the Bronze Award Level and an additional 24 criteria to the rest of the Award.

This review and refresh took in to account the launch of the national Workplace Well-being Charter (produced by Liverpool NHS Primary Care Trust), new national guidance and local good practice and feedback from companies working towards the award who have identified areas achievements that were not currently recognised in the current criteria. All of the new criteria is available online.

Due to the increase in criteria and good practice the thresholds have slightly increased from 20 to 25 additional points for both Silver and Gold Award Levels. This has all been updated online.
I.E:
- To achieve Bronze Award level = All core criteria
- To achieve Silver Award level = All core criteria plus 25 additional criteria
- To achieve Gold Award Level = All core criteria plus 50 additional criteria

We aim to hold the Annual Healthy Workplace Awards in March 2013 and therefore the deadline for Award Assessments will be the end of January 2013.

Please remember to complete the online self assessment prior to the onsite Healthy Workplace Assessment visit.

Ginsters

A reduction in cost of advertising and agency fees attest to the fact fewer people leave the company and that candidates now approach Ginsters direct as they are seen as an employer of choice.  Number of applicants in 2005 = 2481, in 2006 = 3641 and in 2008 = 3764.  Advertising costs reduced from £50,743 in 2005 to £33,805 in 2007 and £18,126 in 2008. 

Cancer Support in the Workplace - Dec 2013

Almost one person in five with cancer who was employed full time when they were diagnosed felt that their employer could have done more to understand their needs and circumstances, a poll by insurer Unum and Maggie's Cancer Caring Centres found.  Better communication was the key, it added.  ( Occupational Health, December 2013)
