Promoting staff health and wellbeing

"There are recognised benefits in promoting staff health and wellbeing both for the individuals concerned and their employing organisations, in relation to reducing sickness absence, reducing staff turnover, and promoting productivity.  In workplaces that are set up to foster (staff) wellbeing, people tend to be more creative, more loyal, more productive, and perform better in terms of customer satisfaction". 
New Economics Foundation 2014

Research suggests that approaches which are comprehensive in their design, are championed by senior leaders and actively designed with staff, and which are regularly evaluated and monitored are likely to be the most successful. (PriceWaterhouse Coopers 2008; NEF 2014)
