Northamptonshire Healthy Workplace Week 14 - 18 May 2018
Now in its fourth year, Healthy Workplace Week has become an annual feature on Northamptonshire's calendar.
Healthy Workplace week aims to engage businesses from across Northamptonshire to get involved in various initiatives during the week to increase awareness, educate, inspire and activate employees to take care of their health and wellbeing.
Northamptonshire Healthy Workplace Week is a locally driven awareness campaign which aims to provide businesses with ideas, activity, information and resources which can be used to help shine the spotlight on the importance of health and wellbeing at work as well as address the need for workplace health solutions.
The key organisations driving the week are: Northamptonshire Sport, Northamptonshire Public Health, Adult Learning Learn2b Service, First for Wellbeing and Northamptonshire University, who will champion activities, services and events which will help to address Northamptonshire's public health priorities.
The theme for 2018 Healthy Workplace Week will be STRESS and RESILIENCE
