The British Safety Council is offering any organisation employing up to 500 staff the chance to get free support to improve the wellbeing of their workplace.

As part of its campaign on workplace wellbeing, Keep Thriving, the health, safety and wellbeing charity is inviting SMEs and micro-sized employers to apply to attend one of a series of free 3-hour workshops to help them develop a wellbeing strategy. Applications are currently open until 30 November.

The sessions will be delivered by experts from British Safety Council’s Being Well Together programme. The aim is to help employers explore why wellbeing matters to them, their people and their business, and ways they can improve their wellbeing. The session will help small, medium and micro-sized employers to develop a strategy which works and to track and evaluate their progress, according to British Safety Council.

Peter McGettrick, Chairman of British Safety Council, says his charity we wants to do something to help firms worried by the many issues they currently face – including energy and covid.

“We are offering SMEs and micro-sized employers the chance to improve the wellbeing of their staff, completely free of charge, he said. “Employers will be able to meet other like-minded organisations to discuss the challenges, opportunities, and best ways of developing a wellbeing strategy and find out how improving wellbeing boosts their organisational performance and reduces the likelihood of accidents and ill-health among their staff. This is a great chance to take a fresh look at how you, your staff and your business can succeed and thrive together.”

Any employer with to up to 500 staff can apply. More information along with how to apply for the offer can be found here.
