W@WD promotes physical and mental wellbeing in the work environment and is a chance to remind people that overworking and poor posture can lead to musculoskeletal disorders and stress. More than 800 CSP members took part in W@WD this year.
Aviva has recently begun a three year partnership with the CSP across the Society’s Fit for Work initiative. The programme of activity and resources are designed to improve the wellbeing of the UK workforce and to highlight the importance of physiotherapy in preventing and reducing work related ill-health and sickness absence.
What benefits are there for employers?
W@WD is an opportunity for employers to encourage staff to be healthier, take proper breaks and get exercise. This can help reduce sickness absence and the expense that brings and improve productivity and morale in the workplace.
