Business Healthy, a dynamic response to pressing business and social issues.

Business Healthy is a City of London led initiative to unite the business leadership in meeting the health and wellbeing needs of City workers.

Successful companies tend to have healthy, productive workforces, and employers are starting to realise that investing in employee health and wellbeing makes good business sense. With more than 130m work days lost through sickness in the UK alone, this equates to an estimated cost of £32bn. Business Healthy is providing a dynamic response to this pressing issue.

Business Healthy provides an up-to-date library of resources and holds expert-led events throughout the year for City businesses. Both resources and events provide pioneering information on health and wellbeing best practice, tackling mental health and ensuring a return on health investments.

City businesses are making great strides in employee health, and many have taken the step to join the Business Healthy Circle. These members are benefitting from using Business Healthy as a forum for discussion and learning.
