The London healthy workplace charter provides a citywide framework to support and recognise the work of employers in London investing in health and wellbeing.
The framework provides a series of standards for workplaces to meet under key headings:
- corporate support
- health and safety
- attendance management
- physical activity
- smoking cessation
- substance use
- mental health and wellbeing.
Employers are encouraged to work towards three levels against each standard: commitment, achievement and excellence, with a London borough workplace health lead providing support and advice.
How does it benefit organisations?
Organisation who have signed up to the charter have reported benefits of greater productivity levels, lower staff turnover and fewer leaves of absence.
