One of our key areas of work is workplace health and wellbeing.
We have successfully delivered a range of workplace health projects. These include consultation and interventions to the private and public sector, research projects and evaluation of existing programmes of work.
And don’t forget to save the date for next year, 21 February 2018! The Wellbeing Symposium covers all aspects of health and wellbeing, including physical and mental health, workplace and community, government policy and law, and partnerships and social value.
From 2013 to 2014, we partnered with the Community Health Learning Foundation to train ‘health champions’ in 6 Serco Health-run hospitals in England and Scotland, focusing on the three major risk factors. Serco Health is an international public services provider helping governments deliver healthcare.

An award from the Health Foundation from 2015 to 2016 asked us to look at the evidence base for workplace health and wellbeing. Our focus was on one of the largest employers in the world: the UK’s National Health Service (NHS).
Completed materials include an infographic illustrating workplace health tips, a set of case studies from the NHS and businesses, a rapid review, and an expert workshop and report on workplace health’s link to productivity.
We are leading this two-year project in collaboration with London South Bank University and the Royal College of Nursing. This project focuses on registered nurses in England who are obese. It provides a unique opportunity to learn from these nurses about their own self-care, what would help them to lead healthier lives, and identify what works for workplace interventions.
This two-year project with health professionals is funded by the South London Health Innovation Network. Led by London South Bank University and in partnership with Younger Lives, we are aiming to raise awareness of personal health and wellbeing in the NHS workforce using a social-marketing campaign.
