Creating change in MY workplace
As adults we spend around half our waking hours at work, so it’s no wonder that the workplace is a place with huge potential to influence our health and wellbeing.
From having more energy and feeling happier at work, to increasing productivity and reducing staff absenteeism – workplaces are an ideal place to support and promote healthy habits.
