Free well-being support re-opens to SMEs and micros

British Safety Council has re-opened its offer to SMEs and micro-sized employers to apply to attend a free three-hour workshop to help them develop a well-being strategy.

In the face of pressures following COVID and considering the current economic challenges, the health, safety, and wellbeing charity have said that micro, small, and medium-sized employers can apply to get free support to improve the well-being of their workplace, through its campaign on workplace wellbeing, Keep Thriving.

Applications are currently open until 1st March.

The sessions, delivered by British Safety Council’s Being Well Together programme, help employers explore why well-being matters to them, their people, and their business, and ways they can improve their well-being. The workshop helps small, medium, and micro-sized employers to develop a strategy that works and to track and evaluate their progress.

Mike Robinson, Chief Executive of British Safety Council said, “We have been delighted with the response so far by SMEs and micro-sized employers to our offer of free support to improve the well-being of their staff. That’s why we are re-launching new applications and creating more places to attend one of our workshops this Spring.

“We understand the pressures on small businesses, not just following the Covid pandemic but also with the high cost of energy, and as a charity, we want to do something to help.

“Employers tell us they have found it useful to meet other like-minded organisations to discuss the challenges, opportunities, and best ways of developing a well-being strategy. We know that improving wellbeing not only boosts organisational performance it reduces the likelihood of accidents and ill-health among staff.”

As well as the free workshops, British Safety Council is offering all employers who attend the opportunity to apply for a cash award to fund an activity they decide to do as a result. The charity wants to make up to £10,000 available to one or more organisations. Any employer with up to 500 staff can apply.

Every employer who attends the workshops will also get additional follow-up and written materials from the Being Well Together programme.
