Promoting Health & Wellness at Work, latest Blue Paper from 4imprint

(Manchester, UK) – Promoting Health & Wellness at Work is the latest Blue Paper from promotional items retailer 4imprint and is available now as a free download.

The health of the nation is rarely out of the news; couple this with an ageing workforce, sick days costing nearly £29billion a year(1), long-term sick costing larger employers as much as £620k per year(2), and it’s easy to see why Workforce Wellbeing is now a hot topic in the Boardroom.

The Blue Paper considers how employee health directly impacts a company’s bottom line and considers how both employers and employees can work together to improve the health of the workforce as well as overall workplace productivity and efficiency.

“Whether it’s bringing experts in to talk to your team about their health, organising weight-loss or step counting challenges, or even looking at what’s in your vending machine – taking a few easy steps can help focus employees on their own wellbeing,” says Cheryl Jackson-Leafield, Marketing Manager of 4imprint UK and Ireland. “This Blue Paper shows that programmes do not have to be complicated or expensive, and gives tips and ideas to discuss amongst your team to start to make changes for the better.”

Offering a six-point action plan to help organisations launch their own ‘Wellness Programme’ and focussing on four fundamental yet key areas: sleeping, eating well, staying hydrated and exercise, this new Blue Paper discusses the benefits of each and explores simple yet effective ways to integrate them into any workplace.
