Supporting health, resilience and wellness at work.
We have new webpages, including a Menopause factfile, that offer information and advice to encourage and support local government employers to break the stigma around talking about the menopause at work.
Work has become safer with the introduction of health and safety legislation and the move away from physical to more knowledge-based work. But work has also become more complex with rising levels of stress and mental health problems increasingly linked to working lives. And so local government employers must now look at the psychosocial aspects of their workplaces and working practices.
Efficient and effective organisations need health and wellness as core values in creating people-oriented places to work.
The evidence is clear that building effective wellbeing policies and practices will support employee engagement, increase morale and productivity. Happy, healthy employees are more likely to be present, motivated and productive.
We have a range of resources to help local government employers with this.
