Bronze Healthy Workplace Award For Solar Gates UK
Solar Gates UK are delighted to announce that Kent County Council have awarded them a bronze Healthy Workplace Award.
The Healthy Workplace programme helps businesses become healthier places to work. Having healthy staff and a healthy workplace can help reduce sickness and increase productivity as staff will be well enough to work effectively. Evidence shows that for every £1 spent on healthy workplace initiatives, businesses benefit from between £2 and £32 in reduced sickness, turnover and improved productivity.
Encouraging staff to make small changes and have a healthier lifestyle is yet another initiative that Solar Gates UK, support to nurture a physically and mentally healthy workplace. The benefits of a healthy workplace are:
1. Improved health of staff - Having a healthy workplace can benefit staff's diets and health. This can reduce staff absence and the number of staff who leave the organisation and need to be replaced which costs the UK £5.2billion every year.
2. Increased staff productivity - Staff that feel supported, are physically active and have a higher staff morale are more productive at work.
3. Increase your organisation's appeal - Staff that feel supported are less likely to leave the organisation. This can help you to keep existing talent.
Neil Sampson Managing Director of Solar Gates UK says “The health and wellbeing of staff is a top priority here at Solar Gates UK, our staff are our biggest asset and I for one want them to live happy and fulfilled lives. This award helps us to show how our practices are helping our staff with their health and wellbeing. I am looking forward to continuing to work with Kent and Medway Councils to gain our Silver and Gold Award later in the year”
