Looking After Employees
Supporting the health and wellbeing of employees has a positive impact on workforce performance.
The Chamber works collaboratively with a number of stakeholders to raise awareness of and support strategies that enable employers to assess workplace wellbeing and to make a commitment to improvements that will impact on the bottom line. Health and Safety is a regulatory requirement, however, there are other ways in which employers can contribute to the health of the workforce.
Worcestershire Works Well
The Chamber is a partner in the Worcestershire Works Well program. This is an accreditation program which is free to join and which encourages and supports businesses to take a more proactive approach to the health and wellbeing of its workforce. Employers are provided with regular updates and resource packs and, with the support of a dedicated WWW representative, are able to progress through three accreditation levels which encompass a broad range of health and wellbeing topics. The WWW team also organise two health and wellbeing events a year which include a range of speakers on a variety of topics and the opportunity to network and share best practice and new ideas.

Time to Change
As an active partner in the Worcestershire Time to Change Hub, we are helping to reduce discrimination associated with mental heath and have signed the employers pledge. Five of our employees have volunteered to become workplace champions and are now working together on initiatives to promote this important topic. Further information may be found here
IOSH Managing Occupational Health and Wellbeing
We have recently been awarded our licence to deliver this accredited course on behalf of the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health, alongside Working Safely and Managing Safely. This course focuses on improving health and wellbeing awareness across the organisation and provides practical advice and tools for managers to help create a healthy and productive place of work.
