FREE Healthy Workplaces event offer for North Somerset businesses


Businesses across North Somerset are invited to take part in a special event later this month, to learn more about supporting employees and creating healthy work environments.

The Healthy Workplaces event takes place on Friday 24 November from 10am to 3.30pm at the Winter Gardens in Weston-super-Mare.

Experts will be on hand with information and advice, including the Better Health North Somerset team who will be sharing information about the council’s ‘Healthy Workplaces Awards’ programme.

Under the scheme, businesses and organisations are supported to make positive changes in their workplace. They can access tools and advice to support their employees with a range of health and wellbeing topics such as mental health, physical activity, stopping smoking, menopause, men’s health, musculoskeletal health, alcohol and substance use and financial wellbeing.

Cllr Jenna Ho Marris, North Somerset Council’s executive member for public health, said: “Lots of us spend a significant amount of our time at work which means the workplace itself plays a key role in contributing to the health and wellbeing of employees, in turn supporting the health of the organisation. Having a healthy and productive workforce should be every organisation’s ambition.

“This event is a great opportunity for all types of businesses, employers and individuals who are interested in health and wellbeing to meet, network and find out more about creating a healthy workplace.

“There’ll be a series of talks from workplace health and wellbeing experts, ‘stories of change’ from employers who are creating healthier workplaces for staff and our own Healthy Workplaces team. We’ll also have a marketplace of stalls as well as bitesize workshops to showcase all the expertise in health and wellbeing across North Somerset that workplaces can access. Book your ticket now to reserve your place!”

The event is completely free to attend, and refreshments and lunch will be provided. Tickets can be booked at
