Public Health England and Business in the Community have produced a collection of national workplace health toolkits for employers.

  1. Mental health toolkit for employees
  2. Musculoskeletal Toolkit for Employers
  3. Reducing the risk of suicide: a preventative guide for employers provides guidance and advice on how to incorporate suicide prevention into an employer’s workplace health and wellbeing framework.
  4. Crisis management in the event of a suicide: a postvention guide for employers offers practical and sensitive guidance for employers to follow in the aftermath of an employee suicide.
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. 

Smoking

Those who smoke six cigarettes a day or more have a 34% higher incidence of being absent than non-smokers and a 10% higher incidence of being absent for longer.
