Workplace wellbeing providers and employer organisations are being asked to submit their health and wellbeing practices in a project reviewing what interventions are available.

 Public Health England is overseeing the survey and is being promoted by NHS Health Check. “The most promising and innovative practices will be featured as case studies and infographics in the public report. These will be available to organisations for wider promotional activities,” said NHS Health Check.

In addition, PHE and RAND Europe will invite participating organisations to a networking event in 2018 to recognise promising practices and launch the report. “Each submission will also receive tailored, confidential feedback from the research team and all submitted practices will be listed in the final report.”

Poor health and wellbeing is estimated to cost the UK economy around £58 billion each year through productivity losses in the workplace.
