What is the Workplace Wellbeing Charter and how does it work?
The Workplace Wellbeing Charter is a an evidence-based award scheme which is seen as statement of intent, showing commitment to health and wellbeing. The Charter provides advice, guidance and resources to help organisations create an environment in which individuals can flourish. The Charter has been running successfully for over four years and is now endorsed by Public Health England.
Organisations using the Charter benefit in many ways including:
- The ability to Audit and Benchmark against an established and independent set of standards – identifying what the organisation already has in place and what gaps there may be in the health, safety and wellbeing of your employees.
- Developing strategies and plans – The Charter provides a clear structure that organisations can use to develop health, safety & wellbeing strategies and plans
- National recognition – The Charter award process is robust and evidence based. With over 1,000 organisations across England holding the award, The Workplace Wellbeing Charter is now widely recognised as the business standard for health, safety & wellbeing across England. The award helps to strengthen the organisation's brand & reputation and supports in sales and marketing activities.
