Business Health Matters, delivered by Active Lancashire and a range of local partners, has this week launched three new wellbeing packages available to businesses across the county.
Launched in 2021, the programme was initially funded to deliver two core services. The first was the ESF-funded Workplace Health Champions training which supports employees to develop their health and wellbeing knowledge and improve the health of colleagues in the organisation. Secondly, the government-funded Workplace Health Checks combine both physical and mental health elements to provide each employee with an overview of their current wellbeing and tangible steps to improve it.
The programme has now added to its portfolio of services and has launched the ‘Explorer’, ‘Adventurer’ and ‘Trailblazer’ packages which embeds additional support for employers, including Mental Health First Aid training, bespoke surveys and reports, wellbeing workshops, an Employee Assistance Programme and much more.
Sarah Walker, Active Lancashire’s Director of Business, explained: “The launch of the new packages is a huge step forward for us and for Lancashire. The three levels of packages are priced in a way that allow businesses to support their employees at a level that is right for them currently, so that they can place employee health at the forefront of their business whilst receiving a positive return on investment through employee productivity.”
The packages are available now to any Lancashire-business, with services delivered through a network of trusted delivery partners including the University of Central Lancashire, Lancashire Mind and UK Active.
