THE 8 STANDARDS

The Charter is segmented into eight topic areas which have been developed in line with best practice and the latest research. These topic areas range from leadership and absence management to physical activity and healthy eating.

Leadership Icon

Leadership

The Leadership standard reviews how health and wellbeing is embedded into policies and procedures, communication methods, the role of line managers, training and organisational development.

Absence Management Icon

Absence Management

Supporting unwell employees is fundamental to the success of any organisation. The standards provide a guide to ensure workplaces move toward a preventative and supportive approach.

Health & Safety Icon

Health & Safety

Benchmarking against this standard helps ensure compliance with legislation and appropriate policies, considering risk assessments, training, reporting and governance structure.

Mental Health Icon

Mental Health

Our standards help workplaces address Mental Health issues by reviewing current practices to reduce stigma, offer support, provide information and training, assess risk, and develop strategies.

Smoking Icon

Smoking

The smoking standard helps workplaces consider workplace regulations, ensuring sufficient information on support for quitting is provided, the company stance on e-cigarettes and smoking in outdoor areas.

Physical Activity Icon

Physical Activity

We encourage workplaces to share information with staff, provide support and encouragement, build simple activity into the working day, signpost to local providers and consider active travel.

Healthy Eating Icon

Healthy Eating

Food choices can profoundly affect health and work performance, and while an organisation cannot tell staff what to eat, the Charter provides a framework to raise awareness of healthy habits.

Alcohol/Substance Abuse Icon

Alcohol/Substance Abuse

The standard helps workplaces ensure clear policies are in place, support is available, managers feel confident to deal with issues and information and regulations are communicated effectively.

    Frequently asked Questions

    Key points about our courses.

    How long is the Workplace Wellbeing Charter valid for?

    The Workplace Wellbeing Charter is valid for two years from the date of accreditation. One of our team will contact you three months before the date your accreditation ends to organise your new reaccreditation.

    How much does the Workplace Wellbeing Charter cost?

    As part of the Medicash Group, we operate as a not-for-profit organisation. We want to help organisations promote positive health and wellbeing at an affordable price. See our pricing page or contact us on 0151 236 6608 to discuss a price bespoke to your organisation. Alternatively, you may prefer to contact us using our Enquiry Form found on the Workplace Wellbeing Charter page.

    What is the cost for reaccreditation?

    Using your Workplace Wellbeing Charter assessment details and after further discussion, a new proposal will be sent to you for consideration. In our experience, unless an extensive transformation occurs within your business, most reaccreditations cost less than the original Workplace Wellbeing Charter assessment.

    How long does it take to achieve the Workplace Wellbeing Charter?

    The average timeframe for achieving the Workplace Wellbeing Charter is 12 weeks. You can achieve accreditation sooner by having all of the relevant evidence available and meetings arranged in advance. Accreditation must be completed within eight months. If you have any problems achieving the Charter within eight months, you must notify your consultant to assess the situation. 

    How does the accreditation process work?

    There are five categories that you will work through with the assistance of your assigned consultant. Throughout the process, you will have access to your own organisation’s ‘client folders’ where you can upload evidence and track progress. Your consultant will be on hand to answer any questions you may have and arrange milestone meetings to discuss progress. More information can be found on our Workplace Wellbeing Charter page.

    When can I start using The Workplace Wellbeing Charter branding?

    As soon as you begin the journey towards accreditation, our ‘Workplace Wellbeing Charter in Progress’ branding can be used. Once the Workplace Wellbeing Charter has been completed, the in progress branding will be replaced with the full Workplace Wellbeing Charter brand.

    Can I work towards the accreditation and receive training credits?

    Yes. We want to support organisations with their entire wellbeing programme. Please look at the Package Pricing page for our full range of accreditation packages. If you have any specific requirements, please get in touch, and we will put a bespoke plan together for you.
