Active at work

work out at work

We know that physical wellbeing has great impact on mental wellbeing and on the ability of our staff to be the best that they can. For this reason we support activities that encourage people to be physically active. The NHS recognises the importance of a healthy balance between work and life. The Improving Working Lives (IWL) initiative was introduced in 2000, and has helped bring about a real culture change within the NHS - reducing stress, increasing motivation, and improving productivity among staff.
