Healthy Workplaces Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport (LRS)
UK Businesses are currently facing losses of 4.4 days sick leave per employee, per year costing the UK economy over £9bn with organisations across Leicestershire reaching peaks of 12 days, nearly 3 times the national average.

Lack of time, flexibility and the ability to build healthier options into the working day are cited as the biggest barriers to leading a healthy lifestyle. Yet it can be hard to understand where organisations can prioritise investment in staff health and wellbeing especially when moving above and beyond basic health and safety requirements.

We hear from Abbi Tyson, Sports Development Officer at LRS, who have designed and developed a Wellbeing@Work package which offers organisations across Leicestershire and Rutland an exclusive opportunity to access a new Workplace Health Needs Assessment. The package helps to identify priority areas of health and wellbeing and provides practical advice on how to tackle them.

Through insight led health and wellbeing programmes, Westfield Health help people to eat well, move more, sleep better, think clearly and stay healthy.
