Helping businesses create a happier, healthier workforce

We all know that ill health of employee's leads to loss of production, staff turnover and absenteeism which has a cost implication for organisations. One way to tackle this is by using physical activity to improve the physical and mental health of employees. Illness related absences cost UK workplaces £14.9billion per year. Reducing staff absences by one day per year can save workplaces £1000s each year.

The workplace wellbeing programme, run by Herts Sports Partnership aims to increase physical activity levels of employees across Hertfordshire. The wellbeing programme encompasses a range of activities to support employees to become more physically active:

*Summer after work sports competitions (May – September)
*Training for Workplace Activity Champions
*Providing advice on how to encourage your staff to be more active at work
*Giving you contact details of local physical activity instructors to help you set up activity sessions at your workplace
*Health MOT's (using Boditrax)
*Participating in monthly challenges through the Workplace Challenge Website
*Equipment loan for office sports equipment
