The Workplace Wellbeing group is led by the Public Health Directorate, working alongside colleagues from public, private, and third party sectors.

Together we produced the Workplace Wellbeing Toolkit, which is a helpful and practical guide to support local organisations in implementing Wellbeing initiatives at their workplace. We hope to see the Workplace Wellbeing culture embedded within organisations to make for a more productive and prosperous Island. The toolkit outlines key areas to focus on as part of a workplace health programme including:

Alcohol and drug use: reducing the negative impacts of problem drinking and drug use

Climate change: improving your workplace's sustainability by changing workplace practises can have a positive impact on staff mental health and the overall wellbeing of the Island

Domestic abuse: enabling open discussion and knowing how to spot the signs

Financial wellbeing: poor financial wellbeing can impact negatively on employee productivity and engagement

Menopause: encouraging open discussion to help women in this age group cope with potential symptoms

Nutrition: ensuring healthy eating choices are available to employees to improve productivity and overall wellbeing at work

Physical activity: providing opportunities for employees to incorporate physical activity into their daily lives

Positive mental health: supporting employees who are experiencing mental health problems

Sleep: understanding employees' individual sleep patterns and generating ideas on how they can sleep better

Smoking cessation: supporting employees who want to quit smoking to minimise the risk of poor health

Stress management: helping employees to manage stress to minimise the risk of associated health concerns

Working from home: ensuring employees are safe and productive when working from home while also respecting the same work-life balance as in the office.
