How long does it take to achieve the accreditation?
There are three stages of the accreditation. Completing the full accreditation will take 2 years. Visit the accreditation webpage to learn more about the stages of the accreditation.
Is my business small, medium or large?
Small: 1 - 49 employees
Medium: 50 - 249 employees
Large: More than 250 employees
Why do some services cost more if I am a larger organisation?
Evidence suggests that smaller organisations are half as likely to take a proactive approach to the health and wellbeing of their employees than larger organisations, with larger organisations also being much more likely to provide a wider range of health and wellbeing support for their employees.
It is recognised that one of the main barriers for smaller organisation is cost.
By charging organisations based on the number of staff that they employ, we aim to provide all Leicestershire based organisation equitable access to the chargeable products of the Healthy Workplaces Leicestershire programme.
We have already signed up to a Workplace Health & Wellbeing programme in the past, is this the same?
The Healthy Workplaces programme is a new programme for April 2023. In the past, Active Together lead the Wellbeing at Work programme that was part funded by Leicestershire County Council (Public Health) and available to organisations across Leicestershire, Leicester City and Rutland.
The Healthy Workplaces Leicestershire Programme has been developed to support the holistic health and wellbeing of the working age population across Leicestershire, and is now run by Leicestershire County Council (Public Health).
We have already completed a Workplace Health Needs Assessment before, do we have to do it again?
We recommend completing a Workplace Health Needs Assessment if it has been over 2 years since the last completion.
The Workplace Health Needs Assessment has been reviewed and updated with the newest data and research.
