Employers are facing an increasingly challenging recruitment and retention environment as more EU citizens leave the UK and fewer join. On top of an ageing workforce, UK employers will have to think about how they can attract and retain the staff they need for future business success.

While salary is always going to be important, things like flexible working and an attractive set of employee benefits can now turn heads more than ever before. As a result, the proportion of employers that are actively choosing to invest in workplace wellbeing initiatives and programmes is steadily increasing. 

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.
