Promoting the health of your workforce improves attendance, productivity and morale . This has been identified by national studies such as the Boorman Review (2009) and Dame Carol Black’s Working for a Healthier Tomorrow (2008) and is recognised in the Government’s Paper  “Health, work and wellbeing: caring for our future” first produced by the Department of Work and Pensions in 2005 – www.gov.uk/government/publications/health-work-and-wellbeing-caring-for-our-future.
