This comprehensive and highly cost-effective three-year health and wellbeing programme was across the Department: 86,000 employees and 1,200 locations were invited to participate. The delivery approach was multi-faceted, designed to include stakeholder engagement. ‘Recruitment’ and training of over 1600 site managers (local sponsors) and wellbeing champions was delivered to achieve local engagement. A bespoke online wellbeing centre provides 24/7 access to an interactive, clinically validated health and wellbeing resource portal. Integral to establishing this was a health and wellbeing questionnaire which signposted tailored personal assessments for sleep, stress, activity and nutrition. Completion of each assessment produced an immediate individual report with simple actionable steps for change. All employees had the opportunity to complete the health and wellbeing questionnaire twice – 50,000 (58% of) employees did so. The programme is credited with being a major contributor to reducing sickness absence days from 11.1 in 2009 to 7.3 in 2012 at which point the client took full responsibility for the continuing wellbeing programme. Financially, direct savings between 2009 and 2012 were estimated at £26 million.
