A-Star Sports achieves healthy workplace status

A-Star Sports based in Chester and the surrounding areas, has been commended for demonstrating its commitment to the health and wellbeing of its employees by receiving a Simplyhealth Healthy Workplace award.

Provided 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.

Over the last few years we’ve put a lot of emphasis on looking after our staff, from healthcare and healthy eating through to free fun physical activity resources for families and a wider employee assistance programme.  We do a very physical job and we are role models for young children, so it’s important to prioritise health and wellbeing in both our professional and personal lives. This award is fantastic recognition of our achievements through putting such positive steps in place.
