Benefits of The Healthy Workplace Award
People are the most valuable asset in any business or organisation.
Evidence shows that a positive working environment is good for people’s health and general sense of wellbeing. It will increase morale, improve motivation, and can add a boost to the bottom line.
Equally, a poor working environment can have a negative impact on health which can have severe implications for an organisation, from productivity to general performance.
Achieving a ‘Healthy Workplace Award’ marks a clear commitment by your organisation to improve workplace health, keeping employees well at work, which has a positive impact on morale, productivity, absenteeism and presenteeism.
The 8 core standards have been developed to provide a constant framework for you to measure what you are doing well, and where there are areas for improvement.
You will benefit by joining a network of other organisations, sharing ideas and good practice about what works (and what doesn’t) and following a framework to gauge your performance against peers regardless of size or sector.
The Healthy Workplace Award invites employers to take a flexible, honest appraisal of how their organisation is performing.
Far from being an optional extra, workplace accreditation can have a profound impact, paying dividends for employers and employees alike.
Once the standards have been completed, there is then the option of an assessment from other participating organisations who can provide a constructive view on what is working well, and what could be improved, based on the consistent benchmark that the award provides.
