Supporting Health & Wellbeing in the Workforce

A happy, healthy workforce who feel valued and supported, is intrinsic to business success.  It can help with staff retention, attract new talent, and can improve overall performance.

From mental health to physical well-being, we aim to provide support and resources to help our Members. This includes events, workshops, networking and signposting to other organisations who can share their expertise directly.

The importance of this is becoming increasingly clear with the benefits including greater productivity, improved staff retention and engagement, reduction in stress and anxiety in the workplace, reduced sick leave and absenteeism and an enhanced reputation.

Recruitment in many sectors remains difficult and therefore those seeking employment are looking at potential employers to see if they will provide them with an improved work life balance and a workplace environment that values them and supports their wellbeing. If employers want to recruit the best people for their business, then they need to demonstrate that they are supportive of this.

GU6 Initiative

Our GU6 initiative aims to help build the resilience of business leaders through what continues to be a challenging business climate. 

Dorset Chamber ‘has the backs’ of our business leaders and through this programme we work with Mental Health First Aiders who are willing to talk to business leaders who may be finding stress levels too much to cope with.

We also run events and workshops to help build your personal reslience skills. Our GU6 Champions will be able to offer crucial peer support to fellow members, as well as signpost to further help where needed.
