London Healthy Workplace Charter – Large Employers
The Greater London Authority (GLA) previously secured the Charter Achievement award; in 2014, they went for one better: Excellence. Lloyds of London, having previously been accredited at Commitment level received the Achievement award. Both organisations introduced the Step Jockey initiative which was well received by staff as staff recognised the health benefits and the time saved by not waiting for the lifts.
Other professionals include Bart’s Health NHS Trust and Shell who also note the benefits including improved staff morale. Shell have introduced a traffic light system within their canteen to enable staff to see which foods are healthiest. There has been an increase in the number of staff opting for the healthier options as a result.
