Workwell Model

Developed by business for business, and based on robust evidence, the Business in the Community Workwell model demonstrates the benefits of taking a strategic, proactive approach to wellness and engagement and provides practical support to help businesses take action.


Together, the four segments of the model cover the actions businesses need to take to create an environment where employees can make informed, healthy choices.

Please explore the links below for measures that you can use to develop your own wellness and engagement programme, and case studies showing how other businesses have tackled the issues.

The Business in the Community Public Reporting Guidelines: Employee Wellness and Engagement include key metrics for measuring the effectiveness of wellness and engagement strategies.

The model also highlights the need for employees to take responsibility for their own health and wellbeing through the five ways to wellbeing, developed by the New Economics Foundation. You can use the case study template to share your own experiences of how promoting health and wellbeing has delivered benefits to your people and your business.
