About the Scheme
Good health and well-being brings many benefits for all of us.
Healthier people tend to be happier, tend to play an active role and contribute to society and the economy through their families, local communities and workplaces. Conversely, poor health and well-being puts a huge strain on individuals, the NHS, the economy and society.
With most adults spending a substantial proportion of their daily lives in the workplace, employers can play a vital role in improving the health and well-being of the work force. This may include ongoing workplace health promotion, raising awareness of particular health issues and supporting employees to make healthier lifestyle choices.
Worcestershire Works Well supports businesses to improve the health and well-being of their employees. Improved employee health and well-being has been shown repeatedly to improve profitability and productivity of businesses.
