Business Health Matters

What is Business Health Matters?

Business Health Matters is a ground breaking programme that aims to build a healthier workforce across Lancashire.

Working with Active Lancashire and supported by partners in the local area, the employment team at Newground Together is working with businesses across Lancashire to improve the physical and mental health of their employees.

Why is the health of employees so important for a business?

Building a stronger workforce not only improves the physical and mental health of staff, but it also ensures employees are happier, healthier and more resilient. This will lead to better opportunities for existing members of staff that will stay in employment, living longer and happier lives!

Other benefits for businesses include, increased productivity and a sustained workforce, ultimately reducing staff absence costs and reducing staff turnover.
