What is Britain's Healthiest Workplace?

Britain’s Healthiest Workplace is the UK’s largest workplace wellbeing survey. We launched it back in 2012 to help businesses understand employees’ health and how it links to their productivity. Your employees take part in the survey and you will be given an in-depth report on how to improve their health. By encouraging them to be healthier, you're also looking after your business. It’s good for you and good for society.

The independent board that oversees the survey is made up of leading specialists in workplace wellbeing and public health. And it's all run with our partners - The Financial Times and University of Cambridge.

When the pandemic hit in 2020, we decided to close the survey. But you can register your interest for when it reopens. If you have any questions, email us on support@healthiestworkplace.co.uk.

Survey findings

Productivity is dropping

Depression is on the rise and productivity is falling at businesses across the UK. According to the survey results, lower income and younger employees are most at risk of low mood. And more than half of all employees are reporting stress because of their finances. We have a workplace wellbeing survey running through summer 2021. Early results shows that since the pandemic began life satisfaction has plummeted.

There’s also a clear link between the lifestyle choices of employees and how they perform at work. The more they exercise and eat well, the more productive they are. But offering virtual exercise classes isn’t always the answer. In fact, many employees don’t even know about their company’s health and wellbeing support. But when they do use them, they work.
