Hampshire Workplace Well-being Charter

Press Release: 04/06/2013

Conference Table

Many of us spend much of our time at work and studies have shown that simple measures that support the health and well-being of staff can reap huge benefits to business.

Employers across Hampshire are being asked to demonstrate their commitment to the health and well-being of their workforce by applying for the Hampshire Workplace Well-being Charter.

The Charter is being launched by Winchester City Council and a consortium of Hampshire authorities who have developed a website www.workplacewellbeinghampshire.org.uk that provides business with the tools they need to gain the Charter by promoting health and well-being throughout their workforce.

Cllr Jan Warwick, Winchester City Council’s Portfolio Holder for Neighbourhoods and Environment, said: “By gaining Charter status businesses can address issues such as the working environment, work-life balance, healthy living and good communication and will improve the well-being of their workforce. In return we hope they will develop a culture with increased productivity, strong loyalty and reduced absenteeism.”
