Workplace Case Studies

Jewson’s Ltd (Widnes)

Keith Jenkins (Store Manager)

I would like to thank you for a fantastic day today. The display that you set up generated great interest and the buy in to the health checks with Pam were second to non – we even got an extra appointment! We generated £235 for the Pancreatic Cancer Fund with generous donations from our customers on the day. We would love to do this again next year!

Tesco Distribution Centre (Widnes)

Hilary Jackson (People & Safety Manager)

We used your services in February for our colleagues and out of the 6 weeks your guys were here we only had one day where we didn’t fill all the appointment slots. We’ve had some great feedback from our guys/ girls who participated and the advice given to them from your team was fantastic! Although I was told I need to lose some weight and stop smoking !!

At Tesco we strive to always put our colleagues first and have done various different Health & Safety schemes and roadshows over the years and I would recommend your services to other employers across the area without hesitation. Thanks again.

Howdens Joinery (Runcorn)

Janet McGettigan (Occupational Health Advisor)

I would just like to say how fantastic Alison has been through the duration of the programme. Throughout the programme she has been committed, enthusiastic and non-judgmental. I consider that is a real credit to her that employees have continued to step forward and look for support throughout the duration of the programme.

Given the many shift systems we have in place it has not always been easy to see everyone each week but when necessary Alison has provided telephone support. I cannot thank her enough and very much appreciate the work your department has done. This work really does change lives and health outcomes.

WSR Recycling Limited (Widnes)

Michelle Lloyd – Assoc CIPD (HR Advisor & PA to the Directors)

WSR Recycling Limited liaised with the Halton Health Improvement Team regarding the Workplace Health Check Service they provide. WSR decided to utilise this service as it fitted well with WSR’s Health & Wellbeing aspirations for helping their staff.  The sessions were well received by WSR staff and the sessions went smoothly and to plan. The NHS staff were very professional, approachable and knowledgeable. It’s a great way to support your staff and promote good health and wellbeing. Would recommend this service.
