Barts Health receive their Healthy Workplace Charter Award

Healthy Workplace Charter

The London Healthy Workplace Charter, backed by the Mayor of London, provides clear and easy steps for employers to make their workplaces healthier and happier. Please note the programme is undergoing an update and will be relaunched soon - please register your interest and we will be in touch to support your organisation as soon as possible.

244 organisations have been accredited and awarded, with more than 310,000 employees benefiting.

Why should you sign up?

Whether you're a small business, large corporation or public sector organisation the Charter can help you:

  • address crucial issues like: recruitment and staff retention, sickness absence and employee productivity
  • get buy-in from senior management to improve health and wellbeing
  • make positive changes in workplace environments and attitudes
  • gain a reputation as a leading London employer, devoted to their staff

Ready to take that first step? Tell us a few things about your business, and we'll be in touch to talk you through it.

How does it work?

The Healthy Workplace Charter is basically a set of standards that organisations meet in order to receive an official accreditation (and award).

With free support from your borough, you can show us how you are really focused on health and wellbeing.
