Further information

Leicester City Council has launched an initiative to encourage improvements in the health and wellbeing of staff.

There is a growing consensus that there is a correlation between health, work and wellbeing.  Work is good for your health and at Leicester City Council we want to enable staff in their efforts to improve their health as well as taking active steps to improve wellbeing. To this end the Council has adopted the Five Ways to Wellbeing as an integral part of their strategy by encouraging staff to follow the advice therein.

What we are doing?

We have produced a booklet entitled ‘Our Healthy Workplace’ setting out the services, benefits and opportunities available to you as an employee of Leicester City Council. There is also a wellness programme of monthly topics for which events and initiatives will be organised.

Various health and wellbeing events have been held, where staff have been able to have checks such as blood pressure, BMI, cholesterol, and blood glucose.  In addition there have been balance checks by IPRS, Indian head massage, Bone Density screening, diabetics checks, keep fit classes, weight management sessions, and many more.  Recognising that our staff are based though out Leicester, we have tried to ensure a balance of venues to allow everyone the opportunity to attend events. 

If you have an enquiry about this page or want to know more about Health and Wellbeing please contact Martin Southam (tel. 454 4307).
