Welcome to Kensington and Chelsea's resource hub for businesses / organisations committed to employee well-being. Here you will find introductory information on the London Healthy Workplace Award and links to a wide range of resources to support your healthy workplace.

Please use the menu to find guidance and resources to support your work on different aspects of employee health and well-being, and your journey towards London Healthy Workplace Award accreditation.

Introduction

The London Healthy Workplace Award is a free framework for action and accreditation scheme that helps you to review and develop all that you do to create an environment in which employees can flourish.

Backed by the Mayor of London and endorsed by Public Health England, it is a great way for businesses to show that their employees’ health and well-being really matters to them. A wide range of employers across London are already benefiting.

The London Healthy Workplace Award guides you in creating a work environment in which employees can flourish. At the heart of its ethos are some key principles:

  • Commitment from the top
  • Employee involvement: plans are more likely to be successful and staff often come up with the best ideas.
  • Workplace health is prioritised in everything you do: are you making the healthy choice the easy choice?
  • You don't have to have a huge budget: national/global health awareness initiatives often have free resources associated with them, and your own employees may have lots of free or low-cost ideas to improve the workplace.
  • Effective communication: how do employees know about support, policies and initiatives? Visit the Healthy Workplace website to find out how the scheme works, and to register your interest.
