Employees get more help to quit smoking and get active

Typhoo, McCain and Centrica – who between them employ more than 35,000 people - have signed up to help their employees to quit smoking by providing workplace stop smoking services or encouraging them to go to appointments during working hours without losing any pay. The Co-operative has a new individual pledge to encourage more people to become more physically active.

The pledges are part of the government’s responsibility deal, working with business to make changes to help make the population healthier. So far, 285 organisations have signed up to be part of the deal.

Companies are being encouraged to get their staff to use online tools such as NHS Lifecheck to help improve their health and well-being. They will also be encouraging their employees to take part in more formal screening programmes.
