Funded by Knowsley Public Health, delivered by Knowsley Chamber of Commerce. The scheme is dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of the borough’s workforce.
Working Well has been delivered in Knowsley since 2011 through a partnership between Knowsley Public Health and Knowsley Chamber of Commerce. The aim of Working Well is to support businesses so that they can be equipped to provide health and wellbeing support, activities and programmes, around physical health, mental health support, but also looking at the working environment and culture in place.
Knowsley Public Health and Knowsley Chamber are committed to supporting companies to implement, adopt and/or embrace new activities or measures to reduce the impact of Covid-19 on their workforce. Many workers will be concerned and anxious about being in the workplace or travelling there. They will want to know that their organisation is retaining their support for physical and mental health and its current thinking about flexible and remote working.
Working Well can therefore support employers with practical advice, and help companies that may wish to introduce new measures eg. Resilience workshops, mental health awareness sessions, mindfulness, cope with change/stress. To ensure that companies are following good practice, companies applying for a Working Well grant must demonstrate that they have consulted with their workforce to show evidence of staff consultation and feedback.
Is your business an SME in Knowsley? Through Working Well you can access various FREE services that aim to improve the health and wellbeing of your employees, support your efforts to reduce sickness absence, and assist you in complying with Health and Safety legislation.
We know that there is a distinct link between investment in the health and wellbeing of employees and positive outcomes for the organisation and the employee.
Investment in employee health does not need to be large amounts of money. During the 6 years of the operation of the scheme it has been evident that investing time can have huge rewards, therefore Working Well aims to provide benefits with little or no monetary investment.
