Wellbeing champion toolbox
A wellbeing champion is somebody who acts as a listening ear for colleagues, outside of the line management structure. This guide contains everything rail organisations need to set up a champion programme.
Good physical health is closely linked to good mental health—and low physical activity and poor eating habits can undermine this. This toolkit has information and ideas to help employers take a positive approach to activity and diet.
This is part of a suite of eight interconnected toolkits, produced by Business in the Community and Public Health England, to help every organisation support the mental and physical health and wellbeing of its employees. Each addresses a different aspect of workplace wellbeing, with a common thread of mental health running through them all. They’re freely available and designed to be relevant to employers across all sectors.
The full suite consists of:
The toolkit includes an overview of what we know about physical activity, healthy eating and healthy weight, and brings it together into a holistic approach to supporting employees’ physical health. It’s full of practical ideas, outlining not just what employers can do but how to do it. It’s divided into sections on different topics with built-in navigation and links between them, so you can follow it step by step or go straight to the sections you want to know more about.
The key messages and takeaway actions are also available in a quick, graphical two-page summary .
You can also download a self-assessment toolkit, in Excel spreadsheet format, to gauge your organisation’s progress in implementing the measures recommended across several of the Business in the Community / Public Health England toolkits.
