The UK Challenge
With absenteeism costing the UK economy over £15 billion every year, employee health and wellbeing is one issue you can’t afford to ignore1.
Our 2nd year
Now in its second year, Britain’s Healthiest Company is the first initiative of its kind in the UK that seeks to understand just how healthy the nation’s workers really are.
By understanding the greatest health risks your employees face, you can take action to help reduce absence rates, increase employee engagement and improve your bottom line as a result.

What is Britain’s Healthiest Company?
We believe that employers are in a unique position to make a positive impact on the health of Britain’s workers that will not only improve the lives of those individuals, but could also improve the rate of absence and the associated costs to businesses.
