North Middlesex University Hospital is among 64 businesses and organisations across the capital that were presented with the London Healthy Workplace Awards.

Businesses in London that show outstanding dedication to the health and wellbeing of their staff have been honoured at a special event at City Hall on Monday 18 November 2019.

The London Healthy Workplace Award is an accreditation scheme led by the Mayor of London's Office and supported by Public Health England. It acts as a template for good practice and recognises London employers which invest in their employee’s health and wellbeing. The scheme supports organisations of all sizes across public, private and voluntary sectors.

The award helps organisations address some of the biggest challenges businesses face, including recruitment and staff retention, sickness absence and employee productivity. Organisations are encouraged to develop wellbeing programmes across a wide range of areas, including support for mental health and wellbeing, smoking, alcohol and substance misuse, improving physical activity and promoting healthy eating.

Maria Kane, Chief Executive of North Middlesex University Hospital, said: “Our staff make North Mid what it is – a vibrant, caring and rewarding place to work. It’s our duty to care for our patients, but it’s just as important that we look after our staff. That’s why we have spent the last year investing in our health and wellbeing programme, so that staff are supported to live a healthy lifestyle. I’m really pleased that this has been recognised and will help spur us on to make our health and wellbeing offer even better for staff.”

Dr Tom Coffey OBE, Mayor of London Health Advisor, said: “Creating and fostering healthy workplaces has benefits for both employers and staff, improving physical and mental wellbeing, and leading to increased productivity and creativity. We want better health for all Londoners, and the London Healthy Workplace Awards both celebrates best practice and offers guidance for organisations to improve work standards. I’d like to congratulate all the winners for their great work.” 

The Mayor of London is committed to ensuring employers across the capital are provided with clear and easy guidance on how to improve their workplaces to enable their staff to flourish. These awards complement the Mayor’s Good Work Standard which sets the benchmark for what the Mayor wants every London employer to achieve, including fair pay and conditions, wellbeing, skills and progression, and diversity and recruitment.
