A successful health and wellbeing programme requires engagement, time and commitment. We have worked with our network of health and wellbeing leads across the NHS to identify the eight elements
that are critical to delivering a robust and effective health and wellbeing offer for staff.
The elements should not be focused on in isolation, but all need to be in place in order to ensure your wellbeing strategy is as effective as possible. Interventions without communication or leadership will not have the desired impact to help create a healthy culture in your organisation and ensure staff are fully supported.
We've categorised the elements, the first four are key behaviours that need to be in place to ensure the other elements will be effective. The second are the actions that you need to take. The biggest impact is seen when the following eight are in place:
| Key behaviours
|| Know your data
| Shared strategic vision
|| Evaluate and act
