Guidance for better workplace wellbeing

About Guidance for better workplace wellbeing

This online guidance builds on the existing evidence of what works to improve wellbeing in the workplace

When it comes to improving wellbeing in the workplace, context matters. The guidance sets out three questions to ask yourself when thinking about how you can improve wellbeing. It then outlines five principles for action that can underpin any activities, policies, or approaches to make them more likely to be sustainable.

Making wellbeing improvement cost-effective

We have developed a cost-effectiveness calculator for anyone carrying out, or planning to carry out, activities or projects to improve workplace wellbeing.
