In a competitive global economy, nations, cities and companies are increasingly developing and implementing strategies to improve health & well-being in the workplace. Evidently, that investment pays dividends in productivity and reduced costs. Promotion of a healthy workplace is vital to retention and recruitment, reductions in absenteeism and improvement in profitability.

Workplace Health Promotion: is evidenced-based and successful.

The workplace influences health and disease in various ways. Work can cause ill-health if employees have to work within health-damaging working conditions, the available skills are inadequate, or the mutual support from colleagues is lacking. At the same time work can be a resource for personal development and enhancement of personal skills.

WHP contributes to a wide range of work factors which improve employees’ health. These include :-

  • management principles and methods which recognise that employees are a necessary success factor for the organisation instead of a mere cost factor
  • a culture and corresponding leadership principles which include participation of the employees and encourage motivation and responsibility of all employees
  • work organisation principles which provide the employees with an appropriate balance between job demands, control over their own work, level of skills and social support
  • a personnel policy which actively incorporates health promotion issues
  • an integrated occupational health & safety service.

citywork focuses upon these issues in cities that are key to driving national economies. Discussing the latest thinking on workplace health and well-being and providing practical examples and key suppliers to improve health and productivity in your organisation.
