Britain’s Healthiest Workplace is the largest, most comprehensive and FREE workplace wellbeing survey in the UK and Business in the Community is delighted to be working collaboratively with Vitality, the survey's founder. By participating in the survey, employers gain a better understanding of the health risks affecting their employees, how these change over time, and their associated health and productivity impact.
On being welcomed onto Britain’s Healthiest Workplace Advisory Board, Louise Aston, Wellbeing Director, Business in the Community said;
“I’m delighted to be joining the Britain’s Healthiest Workplace Advisory Board. This cements a collaboration between Business in the Community and Britain’s Healthiest Workplace. We are extremely pleased that the questions within Britain’s Healthiest Workplace have been aligned to our own Workwell Model, making the survey an exemplar process for helping employers understand how embedded wellbeing is in their organisational culture. The Workwell Model takes an integrated approach to promoting physical and mental health, both inextricably interlinked, and it’s critical that both employers and employees can track continuous progress on all facets of wellbeing. I encourage as many of our members as possible to take part in Britain’s Healthiest Workplace to help shape support for happier, healthier and more productive workplaces in the future.”
The survey was established in 2012 to alleviate the lack of investment in the health and wellbeing of the staff of UK employers, costing the UK economy an estimated £73 billion. This year, the alignment of the Britain’s Healthiest Workplaces question sets with the Business in the Community Workwell Model ensures the survey takes a whole person approach to physical and mental health demonstrating the benefits of taking a strategic, proactive approach to wellbeing and engagement.
Why your organisation should participate
The research looks at how employers, through the workplace, can support their employees to be healthier and more productive. Participating employers will receive a free organisational health report giving unique insights into the health profile of their organisation and its employees, while each participating employee will receive a personal health report in real-time, which includes their Vitality Age.
How does the survey work?
Britain's Healthiest Workplace aims to study the link between modifiable health risks and short-term productivity, develop a common understanding of what employee health and wellbeing means, and establish a common set of standards that can be applied to all industries. The survey uses a broad set of questions covering lifestyle, clinical and mental health, work engagement and productivity, aligned to the Business in the Community Workwell Model, and an in-depth assessment of the health and wellbeing interventions being offered by employers.
