The Workplace Wellbeing Charter National Standards set out a simple road map for delivery of the NICE guidance on workplace health, yet the participation across the NHS is currently patchy.
Leading organisations commit to:
- undertake a Workplace Wellbeing Charter assessment and accreditation process to ensure that they are fully implementing the NICE guidelines on workplace health.
Last year, Public Health England launched new Workplace Wellbeing Charter standards. The charter provides employers with a straightforward and systematic way of driving these improvements in workplace health. The charter website contains a set of toolkits, information on local accreditation providers, as well as the charter standards themselves, which reflect the most recent NICE guidance.
The charter has three levels: Commitment, Achievement, Excellence and we hope that all organisations will be striving for Excellence and use the networks of the local charter participants to learn from local best practice alongside the learning from within the NHS Network.
