Why invest in workplace health?
Recently, evidence has been collected indicating clear links between investment in the health of the workforce and a number of positive outcomes. A number of North American studies have indicated a return on investment in the range of three – eight to one indicating that for every dollar spent there is a quantifiable beneficial outcome of three to eight dollars.
Small Workplace Health Award
The Small Workplace Health Award is the national mark of quality for health and well-being aimed at organisations employing fewer than 50 people.
It is a developmental process, based on good practice and improvement and it can be used to support the creation of activities that promote the health and well-being of employees. The award has been developed to target the key preventable ill-health issues in your workplace, which will also help to increase organisational performance and productivity.
Three levels of award can be achieved, reflecting the range of actions that an organisation is taking to promote the health and well-being of its staff. The modules that make up each level are stand-alone and it is recommended that organisations view them as a developmental award to be achieved over time.
The diagram summarises the key areas covered at each award level.
