Education and promotion

Our health promotion is pre-emptive and proactive, designed to prevent staff absences,
boost morale and improve productivity.
What's it all about?
Good health education and promotion is a key aspect of creating a productive, healthy and happy culture within the workplace.

Our health promotion is pre-emptive and proactive work designed to prevent staff
absences from occurring. Additionally they help to make employees feel valued,
provide them with useful information, boost morale and ultimately improve

Although it seems unbelievable, it’s amazing how introducing even a small wellbeing benefit to an organisation can have such a significant impact on things like staff productivity, absences and turnover.

Some of the services included in our health promotion work can be seen below.

From not smoking to exercising, from eating healthily to getting enough sleep, our healthy living sessions will offer some easy to implement advice for healthy living. Whether delivered as part of a course or a one off session, our healthy living advice will help to promote a healthy culture within your organisation and ultimately increase productivity whilst reducing absences. It will get your workforce taking an interest in the issue of health.

Stress is the single biggest cause of unplanned absence days, yet amongst many there is still quite a stigma attached to it. Our managing stress workshop will help you to identify early signs of stress and take the appropriate action before it interferes too heavily with your work or personal life. It offers advice on avoiding or dealing with stressful situations, managing workloads and maintaining a healthy work-life balance. This workshop will promote self-esteem and a positive mental attitude in the workplace, as well as reducing future levels of stress. By raising the profile of stress and offering some helpful tips you will notice a reduction in the levels of stress related absences.

We know that some staff like to complete training and development in their own time so that they can manage their own workloads. To help with this we are developing a series of online training tools, giving teachers and support staff access to a range of health promotion materials.

For many there can be no substitute to reading a booklet. At APL Health we have a series of ‘live well’ guides giving individuals information about many different health concerns in an honest and easily digestible format. Your staff will be given access to as many of these as they would like.

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle outside of work isn’t always easy. We are always establishing partnerships with local gyms and activity groups, giving our clients a wide range of extra-curricular options for subsidised rates.

The dangers associated with smoking, alcohol and drugs are well documented however many don’t receive the support they require to quit or reduce their intake. Our smoking, alcohol and drugs management will assess and manage this.
