In today’s climate there’s increased pressure on employees to meet goals and manage more demanding workloads. Many employers are realising that effective health and wellbeing programmes are key to delivering the flexibility they need for continued innovation and growth.

Too many of us are eating too much, drinking too much and not doing enough physical activity. Creating the right environment can empower and support people to make informed, balanced choices that will help them lead healthier lives.

The Public Health Responsibility Deal aims to tap into the potential for businesses to make a significant contribution to improving public health by helping to create this environment. Organisations that sign up to the Responsibility Deal commit to taking action voluntarily to improve public health through their responsibilities as employers, as well as through their commercial actions and their community activities.

Collective pledges covering alcohol, food, health at work and physical activity set out the specific actions that partners agree to take to support the Responsibility Deal.

The alcohol and food pledges have a strong focus on actions that manufacturers, retailers, the out of home dining/catering sector, and bars and pubs can deliver. The health at work and physical activity pledges are not sector-specific and any organisation can sign up.
