Workforce health plays a key role for the City of London in maintaining quality of life for its workforce and a competitive business environment. Evidence suggests that a healthy workforce is more productive and has lower turnover. The need to prioritise employee health and wellbeing is a key consideration that benefits both individuals and businesses and the wider economy.

This research looks at the range of workplace health and wellbeing interventions that organisations are using to retain their competitive advantage in a challenging economic environment. It investigates the published evidence for best practice in workplace health promotion, and explores, through interviews, how this relates to the real-life experiences of large financial and professional services firms in the City. The research focuses on four areas of good practice: health promotion and wellness programmes, mental wellbeing, back pain and musculoskeletal health, and individual vs. organisational approaches.

This report was prepared by Cavill Associates in collaboration with the University of Salford for the City of London Corporation.
