What is the Healthy Workplaces Accreditation?
The Healthy Workplaces Leicestershire Accreditation is an easy to follow and collaborative accreditation process, tailored to your workforce's health and wellbeing needs.
The accreditation process is novel in that the steps needed to achieve each accreditation level is unique to your organisation, as they are based on the results of your Workplace Health Needs Assessment. This means that everything you do to work towards the accreditation is based on the health and wellbeing needs of your staff. This is advantageous by ensuring your time, money and resources will be used in the most effective and efficient way by focussing on those areas that can have the greatest improvement and impact.
What are the Accreditation stages?
The accreditation has three stages that demonstrate your organisation's progression and commitment to staff health and wellbeing:
Engaged = Once your workplace has completed the Workplace Health Needs Assessment (WHNA), our team will support you to identify your goals and targets for the first year. These will focus on the areas of health and wellbeing that have been identified by the WHNA as having the greatest need for improvement. Once your goals and targets have been agreed, you will receive your Engaged accreditation.
Committed = Once the above goals and targets have been agreed, you can start working towards your Committed accreditation. You will do this by submitting evidence that showcases your completion of the above goals and targets to your online dashboard. Once this is approved, you will achieve the Committed accreditation. You have 1 year from receiving your Engaged accreditation to submit the evidence for your Committed accreditation.
Empowered = Once you have received your Committed accreditation, we will then set new goals and targets with your help so you can work towards your Empowered accreditation. Again, you will have 1 year to submit the evidence that is required for your Empowered accreditation. Once your evidence is submitted, your workplace will complete the Workplace Health Needs Assessment again to identify any changes or improvement. You will then receive the Empowered accreditation.
In order to maintain your Empowered accreditation, you will be required to evidence your continuous commitment towards the health and wellbeing of your staff every 2 years with us.
