FENLANDER: Seminar will promote better health among businesses’ workforces
BUSINESSES in Fenland are being offered free places on a day-long seminar aimed at helping them promote better health among their workforce.
The seminar is being held at the South Fens Business Centre in Chatteris on October 13. It has been organised by the British Heart Foundation (BHF), with backing from Fenland District Council.
Topics that will be covered include making the business case for keeping staff healthy and ways of gaining their support and overcoming any barriers.
General advice will be backed up by individual case studies and practical ideas for action on physical activity, healthy eating, mental wellbeing and changing people’s habits.
There will also be opportunities for businesses to exchange ideas and experiences and each delegate will receive a free “Think Fit!” practical resource pack worth �25.

Councillor Ralph Butcher, FDC’s portfolio holder responsible for health and wellbeing, said: “Healthy employees make for a healthy business. Keeping your staff fit and happy makes them feel better and helps them to produce their best at work. It also reduces the number of days lost through sickness. Everyone benefits.”
