MSP are delighted to have been re-commissioned by Liverpool City Council and NHS Liverpool CCG to deliver the second Liverpool Active Workplaces programme. This follows on from the successful 2017 programme in which 82 organisations from across the city benefitted, with thousands of staff taking part reporting improved physical and mental health.
We were also able to demonstrate a £14.64 return on investment for every £1 invested in the programme, with participating organisations also experiencing an economic boost from having lower absenteeism and higher productivity levels. The impact of this programme hasn’t gone unnoticed, with one of our colleagues travelling to Brussels in 2019 to speak to organisations across Europe sharing the best practice, and this year we’ve gained international recognition once again, with Liverpool Active Workplaces being featured in the European ‘Sport & Citizenship’ journal.
Even though we are in strange times with the impact of COVID-19 and now working in ‘new normal’ ways, the health and wellbeing of employees is an even greater priority for employers. As we move through the different phases of the easing of restrictions there’s a real opportunity for businesses and employees to start to adopt new behaviours that could result in better productivity, healthier staff and a greener environment – Liverpool Active Workplaces can help businesses in Liverpool to achieve this, and MSP are looking forward to working with some of our stakeholders to provide a range of innovative and informative tools and initiatives that will benefit Liverpool businesses.
Very soon we’ll be working with our partners from across the city’s business community to establish what support local organisations would like from the programme during COVID-19 through an online consultation process – if your organisation would like to get involved then please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get in contact with you when this is ready for release.
