Worcestershire Works Well businesses have found that business-to-business support has been extremely valuable when working towards accreditation for level 1, 2 or 3. Business-to-business support involves champions from local companies sharing knowledge, experience or practical help with each other when working towards accreditation.
Business champions that have signed up to support other companies may offer help by telephone, email, face to face meetings or other methods. The main purpose of business support is to share experience of implementing health and wellbeing initiatives, activities and approaches.
Your WWW representative is the most appropriate person to provide workplace health and wellbeing guidance, and this will not be provided as part of business-to-business support.
Worcestershire Works Well does not take responsibility for the information, advice and support shared between businesses. Business-to-business support is provided purely for your convenience and does not imply that Worcestershire Works Well endorses or supports these organisations or products/ services in any way.
