The past couple of years have been extremely challenging and it has become increasingly important to reassess our commitment to wellbeing as well as how we can educate ourselves and support those around us.
For employers, implementing robust wellbeing strategies is a crucial part of HR planning to ensure a positive and inclusive workplace. Not only does this make your workplace an attractive choice for quality candidates, but it also helps retain employees and makes them less likely to look for alternative roles.
It is also clear that encouraging a healthy active workplace can have a direct impact on productivity. A study of over 1,000 men and women by Harvard Medical School found that those who walked at least 20 minutes a day, at least 5 days a week, had 43% fewer sick days than those who exercised once a week or less. And if they did get sick, it was for a shorter duration, and their symptoms were milder.
For over 100 years, CSSC has supported Public Sector and Civil Service employees and their families to explore new ways to be active while maintaining and developing their physical and mental health. We are able to work with employers to provide a free digital health and wellbeing pack for your staff whether they are CSSC members or not. Membership is completely voluntary for staff to join. This means there are no costs to you as an employer, but also that you are not paying for benefits that may not be used.
From helping you reach your fitness goals to maximising your leisure time, CSSC members have access to over 4,200 ways to save. From fun days out to exclusive deals, members get £300 of free instant benefits, and exclusive access to CSSC savings to earn cashback and get amazing discounts at thousands of supermarkets, DIY, sports, fashion, electrical retailers and all your favourite online and high street stores.
