Workers Can Get Fit with New Workplace Health Project

get fit at workA three-month project has been launched to help Tamworth businesses to encourage their staff to boost their health and wellbeing.

The workplace health project is being funded by Tamworth Borough Council in partnership with Staffordshire County Council and run by Hampton Knight.

The three-month project is aimed at small and medium-sized businesses in Tamworth employing fewer than 250 employees and where staff are sitting down for most of the working day.

Businesses which sign up to the workplace health project will be able to take advantage of five packages, tailored to fit their needs.  The packages include literature & promotional items, presentations, lifestyle assessments and workshops.

Businesses in Tamworth are now being encouraged to sign up to the project, which has limited spaces offered on a first come, first served basis.

Cllr Stephen Doyle, Cabinet member for Communities & Public Health, said, “Improving the wellbeing of the people of Tamworth is one of the Borough Council’s top priorities.

“By funding this project, along with Staffordshire County Council, we are helping employers to support their staff to improve and maintain their wellbeing.  This project ensures that even more people have access to healthy lifestyle support.”

Any business in Tamworth which employs fewer than 250 staff and would like to find out more about the workplace health project is asked to contact Michael Wakeham at Hampton Knight on 01827 65999 or email
