Workplace health and wellbeing.

This website began life as a lawyer’s blog about walking and work. Many of us spend too long sat down at our desks, on the phone or in meetings. That’s not great from a health point of view.  With a few simple steps (pun intended) we can all walk more during our working days and become healthier and happier.

The website has developed a wider brief covering employee health and wellbeing – and specifically how we (employers, human resources, managers) can create a culture of wellness in our organisations to enable employees to be the best they can and develop a sense of purpose, workplace happiness and belonging. Because happy healthy employees are the best kind of employees to help the organisations they work in to flourish.
