Cold homes have a significant impact on people's health. One of the best ways of keeping yourself well during winter is to stay warm.
"The Healthy Workplace programme has supported our business to build and nurture a culture of health and provide GE employees with the resources they need to get and stay healthy.The varying workshops, information & events that the Healthy Workplace programme provides, have enabled us to reach our goals of enhanced health awareness, reduced absenteeism and improved employee engagement within our organisation" - Claire Shelley, GE Money
"I am lucky to work for an organisation whose management has whole-heartedly supported me throughout the process of obtaining the Healthy Workplace Awards. The Directors have never said ‘no’ and it is great to know that my employer is interested in everyone’s well-being at work. Not only have they approved my initiatives but they have also led by example and joined in some of them too. They have committed, what are for us, scarce resources and agreed more flexible working policies as well as offering support to staff who may struggle with work or with personal problems through solid employment policies and management techniques"- Louise Mallas, YMCA Cornwall
