REBA - Is the tide turning towards compulsion for employee wellbeing?

By Katharine Moxham.

There is a cross-department sea-change going on in public policy that businesses should take note of. It is moving fast towards a greater expectation from Government that employers do more towards supporting their people.

The latest policy paper launched by the Department of Health & Social Care, Prevention is better than cure: Our vision to help you live well for longer mirrors some of the rhetoric we’ve already seen in the Department for Work & Pensions’ Improving Lives: The Future of Work, Health and Disability roadmap, Good Work: the Taylor review of modern working practices, Thriving at work: the Stevenson/Farmer review of mental health and employers. All recognise that the workplace is a great place for disseminating messages, and that employers are well placed to make positive changes that will help improve the lives, health and happiness of their people.

Learning from the military

In his recent speech launching the policy paper, the Rt Hon Matt Hancock MP, Secretary of State for Health and Social Care refers to “employers playing a bigger role in helping their staff stay healthy and to return to health after illness.”
