Welcome to the Cornwall Council Workforce Health & Wellbeing Programme
The Workforce Health & Wellbeing Programme is committed to support Cornish staff to live happier, healthier lives and we are dedicated to provide the necessary support and opportunities to enable employees to develop their own staff wellbeing programme.
One size does not fit all so we want to work with you to develop a holistic culture of wellbeing that suits your unique staff through a flexible and responsive process of support and training which starts with your own Health and Wellbeing Champion. Together we can find what works for you; it may be token gestures which encourage a moment of happiness such as a midweek treat to minimize stress or it may be more structured techniques with a focus on individual value or physical health. We are here to help you find out what works well for you.
Improves employee morale and health
Perhaps the most important benefit of wellbeing schemes is their benefit to employee’s health. Companies that promote healthier eating and exercise can help their workforce minimise the risk of heart disease and other health concerns.
It should come as no surprise that healthier and happier employees are more productive. When we eat better and exercise more we are usually less tired and find it much easier to focus better and for longer. In fact, unhealthy lifestyles are correlated to unproductive workplace habits.
Employee recruitment and retention
Employers that commit to improving the health and wellbeing of their workforce stand out for their well-rounded approach to providing for their employees. Your commitment to wellbeing will help cement your reputation as a top employer. Ultimately, this means you will attract and retain talented people and lower recruitment and training costs.
Reduced absenteeism & presenteeism
The wellbeing of workers is increasingly understood to be fundamental to the long-term success of organisations. Happy, healthy and empowered workers are more likely to perform better at their jobs, take fewer sick days, stay with an organisation longer, give better customer service and, ultimately, boost a company’s productivity.
