Workplace health and wellbeing

We work directly with local workplaces and a range of service providers in our area to boost employee health and wellbeing. 

Our Workplace Health team (part of our Public Health team) aims to support businesses and organisations across our region to create supportive and thriving environments for all employees.  

We focus on providing free health and wellbeing services for local organisations, to enhance physical, mental, and emotional wellness.

Public Health is a shared service across Central Bedfordshire, Bedford Borough and Milton Keynes.

Why prioritise workplace health? 

Maintaining a healthy work environment fosters productivity, reduces absenteeism, and cultivates a positive working culture. A healthier workplace not only benefits employees but also contributes to the overall success of an organisation and the community. 

People in the UK on average work 36 hours per week which means 21.4% of our week is spent at work. During this time our working environment is influencing our mood and emotions which can in turn impact on our home lives and our interactions with family and friends.
