Health and Wellbeing

A calm and tranquil lake with large stones dissapearing onto the horizon

Business in the Community (BITC) is supporting organisations to create healthier, happier and more engaged workforces that drive sustainable performance and productivity, benefiting employers, employees, customers and making communities more resilient.

BITC defines ‘wellbeing’ as the mutually supportive relationship between an individual’s mental, physical, social and financial health and their personal wellbeing.

Taking a whole organisation approach to embedding wellbeing into an organisational culture is key to achieving maximum impact. Wellbeing should be positioned as a strategic boardroom issue supporting thriving people, thriving business and thriving communities.

Find out more about BITC’s work on health and wellbeing.

Health and Wellbeing sits under Healthy Communities, one part of BITC’s Responsible Business MapTM, which guides our members on a journey of continuous improvement, working across the whole responsible business agenda.

Business in the Community is a network of progressive businesses who look beyond the profit motive, who want to make a difference within society and who are prepared to collaborate to bring about change.
