A third of a person’s working hours are spent at their workplaces, whether this is at an office or at home. Workplaces offer great potential to promote and sustain employee health and wellbeing. Regardless of the type of workplace it remains vitally important to eat healthily and keep moving.
Employers can support their staff to maintain their health and wellbeing by ensuring policies and practices are in place that support healthy choices.
Our plan includes:
- Asking all Public Service Board organisations’ staff restaurants/canteens sign up to healthy food standards.
- Supporting Public Service Board organisations to develop walking and cycling routes available to/from sites and active travel plans.
- Encouraging Public Service Board organisations to participate in healthy workplace principles.
