VitalityHealth Launch Workplace Wellness Survey
Many of you will be aware of, or have even taken part in, VitalityHealth’s workplace wellness surveys in recent years, so you’ll be pleased to hear they have just launched the 2016 incarnation – now known as Britain’s Healthiest Workplace .
Teaming up with the Financial Times, they have rebranded the earlier Britain’s Healthiest Company survey in the hope of it becoming more inclusive. Both employers and employees will respond to questions on health and lifestyle, with a view to VitalityHealth painting a comprehensive picture of workplace culture in the UK and bringing about improvements in health outcomes in the business community.
The country’s biggest annual workplace wellness survey, it has built on its initial success in 2013 to receive almost 33,000 employee responses from well over 100 businesses. The company now aims to bring organisations from the private, public and third sectors under the umbrella so as to deliver as holistic overview as possible, something reflected in the fact that companies with just 20 or more team members are this year eligible for the first time.
Britain’s Healthiest Workplace survey will climax with a awards event to be held in London in September of this year. The Financial Times will, of course, play its part by reporting the survey’s findings at the same time.
Winners of Britain’s Healthiest Company in previous years have included businesses as diverse as Johnson & Johnson, Microsoft, adidas UK, Nomura and Sweaty Betty.
Neville Koopowitz, Chief Executive at VitalityHealth, said: “As workplace wellness becomes an increasingly pertinent issue around the UK’s boardrooms, we are proud to celebrate those organisations that are championing healthy employee behaviour and investing in the mental and physical wellbeing of their staff.”
Britain’s Healthiest Workplace was created by VitalityHealth and is to be rolled out in partnership with the University of Cambridge, RAND Europe, the Financial Times and Mercer.
Registration for Britain’s Healthiest Workplace is now open and you have until registration closes on 18th March to make sure your employees’ views are heard.
