Lincolnshire workplaces honoured for work to create healthy workplaces

Workplaces in North Lincolnshire have been celebrated for their achievements at the 2019 Healthy Workplace Awards celebration event.

Employers and employees received recognition and awards for their contribution towards making a real difference to improve health and wellbeing in the workplace.

At the event awards were presented to organisations that have progressed on the scheme to achieve varying award levels. There are four award levels: bronze, silver, gold and platinum and an additional award was up for grabs to celebrate the workplace that has been making outstanding contributions to workplace health and wellbeing throughout 2018/19.

Gold awards were given to:

  • North Lindsey College
  • HITEK Electronic Materials Ltd

A silver award was given to:

  • Rotherham, Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust

Bronze awards were given to:

  • 2 Sisters Food Group
  • Holme Valley Primary School
  • AD Communications
  • Humberside Fire and Rescue Service
  • Scunthorpe and District Mind
  • Voluntary Action North Lincolnshire

An Outstanding Achievement Award was issued to Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust.

The event also included awards to acknowledge outstanding workplace Health Champions. There are over 250 within organisations; 117 of which have been trained in the past year. Health Champions have health conversations with fellow colleagues, peers and family to help improve their health and wellbeing, and cascade positive health messages in the workplace.

Cheryl George, Consultant in Public Health at North Lincolnshire Council, said: “This year’s awards event was a bumper celebration in terms of the number of businesses engaged in the scheme. We celebrated all the amazing local achievements towards creating healthier workforces in North Lincolnshire.

“It is brilliant to see so many organisations on board with the scheme but we are looking for even more to get involved to promote a healthier way of life. If you would like to create a healthier workforce, join the free scheme and start benefiting from all the support.

“We are committed to improving health and wellbeing across the whole of North Lincolnshire and starting in the workplace can make a real difference. Employees enjoying healthier lives take fewer days off sick and are more productive.”
