We support the North East Better Health at Work award, a regional award scheme which recognises and endorses workplaces that motivate employees in developing a sustainable culture of health and wellbeing.
This is a partnership between the NHS and local businesses and is open to all organisations of any business size or sector.
The benefits of providing a healthy workplace include:
- Reduced absence due to ill health caused or made worse by work
- Helping employees who have been ill to return to work
- Improving work opportunities for people currently not in employment due to ill health or disability
- Using the work environment to help people maintain or improve their health
