Thrive at Work is a workplace commitment with criteria and guidelines on creating a workplace that promotes employee health and wellbeing, focusing on key organisational enablers such as health and safety, manager training etc. in addition to health areas such as mental, musculoskeletal and physical health and promoting healthy lifestyles.
There is a helpful supporting toolkit provided to businesses who join of available local and national resources, policies and services that would support implementation of the commitment and intervention uptake by employees by making it clearer and easier for them to raise awareness and take action to improve employee health and wellbeing. The toolkit includes a health needs assessment template which employers can apply to their organisation at their discretion to determine what the key areas of focus are to improve the health and wellbeing of their employees.
Thrive at Work is accessible to employers and employees via a PDF and an interactive, mobile-friendly website. There are login areas for employers to create an account, access resources and update progress on the Thrive at Work Commitment. They can also choose to receive materials (such as prompts, reminders, progress updates etc.) on a regular basis via the website or e-mail.
Thrive at Work is designed in recognition that one size does not fit all and although it specifies criteria and guidelines, and supports and nudges organisations to implement change, it allows flexibility in the way that businesses implement the guidelines and decide how best to allocate resource to meeting the criteria.
