Workplace Wellbeing

Workplace wellbeing has been a key pillar of the Food and Drink Federation's action plan on health since 2004 – and we believe that FDF members have shown real leadership in an area that is now moving rapidly up the political agenda.

FDF Members' Workplace Wellbeing Schemes

At FDF, we are committed to playing our part in making workplace wellbeing a board issue for all businesses. We report on the work our members are doing; showcase excellence through a workplace category in our Community Partnership Awards.

FDF's Workplace Wellbeing Toolkit

In April 2012, FDF launched a toolkit for employers which provides practical guidance for employers on how to create, enhance and promote their health and wellness programme in the workplace.

Drawing on the UK food and drink industry's collective experience and incorporating the latest Government guidelines in areas such as healthy eating and physical activity, this resource has been designed to benefit organisations of all sizes.

The toolkit includes:

  • The business case for investing in workplace wellbeing
  • An overview of workplace wellbeing in the food and drink industry
  • An 8-step model for planning, executing, reviewing and updating a workplace wellbeing programme
  • Official Government guidelines and general tips for promoting healthy choices, physical exercise, a sense of community and occupational health
  • Examples of best practice and lessons learned from food and drink companies
  • Additional free resources
