With issues around mental health costing the UK economy £70 billion annually and 27 million days lost due to workplace absence, today's organisations are being forced to challenge traditional approaches to workplace health and wellbeing.1
The Investors in People Health and Wellbeing award offers organisations the opportunity to improve their approach to tackling areas that are negatively affecting employees.
Organisations are assessed using the following constructs: Physical, Psychological and Social Wellbeing. Assessment against each provides a clear picture of performance in the areas that are vital to workplace health and wellbeing.
