A healthy workforce is a happy workforce
As part of our ongoing dedication to the health and wellbeing of our employees, we’ve signed up to The WellMan360° Charter by CHAPS.
What is the Charter?
The Charter is a commitment of our intent to create a happy and healthy workforce. It ensures the wellbeing of our male employees by certifying that they are well informed and have easy access to resources and health services.
Who is CHAPS and why just male employees?
CHAPS is a men’s health charity dedicated to improving awareness and promoting better health services for men.
Men statistically live shorter lives than women. In fact, 60,000 working age men die prematurely each year. Despite this, there is little progress in developing new health care systems like prostate cancer screening programmes targeted specifically at men. Heart disease, smoking and diabetes are serious causes of death for men, and poor health is also now one of the main causes for premature retirement. It is vital that we take care of our workforce and lead by example.
People can be slow to seek out a healthy lifestyle, so we’ve taken it upon ourselves to make sure our staff reach their full fitness potential.
What this means for our workforce
By signing up to the Charter, we’ll be able to share resources with our male employees like healthy eating and exercise plans. Not to mention mindfulness exercises to reduce stress and the CHAPS quarterly newsletter!
This new and improved attitude to wellbeing will improve morale and productivity amongst all our workforce and will help to create a healthier generation of fathers, brothers, sons and uncles.
