1. Introduction

Healthy Working Wales is a free service which supports and encourages employers to improve the health and wellbeing of their staff, engage and communicate with employees more effectively, and helps to achieve a range of business and organisational outcomes. This includes organisational performance, productivity and reducing sickness absence costs through one to one support, training events and workshops, online and telephone information and guidance.

2. Workplace Awards

The Corporate Health Standard (CHS) and Small Workplace Health Awards (SWHA) are available to all public and private enterprises and third sector organisations in Wales who can demonstrate policies and actions designed to promote happier and healthier workforces, helping to improve productivity, reduce demands on our health services and promote work-life balance.

The Awards are a key element of the Welsh Government’s Healthy Working Wales programme. Organisations are provided with free expert support by Public Health Wales advisers and highly-experienced assessors from the Independent Assessment Service. The Awards, at various levels, send a powerful message, internally and externally, that employers are committed to creating a better working environment.
