Capgemini UK achieves healthy workplace status
Capgemini UK plc one of the world's foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services has been commended for demonstrating its commitment to the health and wellbeing of its employees by receiving a Simplyhealth Healthy Workplace award.
Awarded by healthcare provider Simplyhealth, the Healthy Workplace awards recognise the contribution that UK organisations, in both the private and public sector, make to the welfare of employees. Winners of the award provide employees with a range of initiatives and benefits that help to keep their workforce motivated and healthy.
Being the CFO of a large UK company like Capgemini, I consider that any investment needs to make a return and an investment in creating a healthy workplace is certainly no different. We have seen real financial returns since the implementation of our health and wellbeing strategy. Lower absenteeism levels can be attributed to our health and wellbeing programme as people have the support in place to help them to manage their everyday healthcare needs.
Our employees place a high value on the support they receive through this programme and it has even motivated some people to take up the challenge to be fitter and healthier by changing their lifestyle, as a result of the healthy lifestyle awareness drives we’ve undertaken. The results I have seen have exceeded my expectations and I am truly delighted with the positive effects our health and wellbeing strategy is bringing to the workplace.”
I am delighted that Capgemini has been recognised for the commitment we have to the health and wellbeing of our people. We strive for excellence in this area and as a company we will continue to ensure that the health and wellbeing of our employees remains at the forefront of our business objectives.
We run this award scheme because we want to recognise and encourage companies to care about the health of their people. We believe that companies can make a positive contribution to the health of our nation. Congratulations to Capgemini UK on achieving Simplyhealth Healthy Workplace status and demonstrating that the health and wellbeing of its employees is fundamental.
