Checking on Wellbeing in the Workplace

Wellbeing can mean many things but we believe it translates into the business world as the provision of a workplace environment where everyone is safe, healthy and happy.

As an employer, you have a legal duty of care to all your workers. Increasingly, staff expect you to take proactive steps to do this. You also benefit from looking after your staff’s health by reducing absences and improving productivity.

Our Wellness Checks can help you achieve this.

How Loch Training & Wellbeing can help:

Loch Training & Wellbeing are experienced in the design, development and delivery of wellbeing solutions. Our approach has a track record of success across a broad range of industries.

We would love to talk to you about how our wellbeing solutions will improve absence, turnover and engagement within your teams. Within our wellbeing framework, we cover physical and mental health, safety and stress free management.

The starting point is understanding what wellbeing can mean to your business and how through great leadership, behaviours can change to deliver results.

With our Wellness Checks, employers can provide a proactive wellbeing benefit for their employees, and our HR medical specialists provide employers with definitive advice to manage absences and help support employees back to work as soon as possible.

They give you an insight into the health of your workforce across several key health risks, including cholesterol, heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure and kidney disease. Your anonymised workforce report allows you to spot trends and develop wellbeing strategies to improve the health of your employees.

Our Wellness Checks not only provide employees with an insight into their own health which they see as a benefit, but allows employers to take proactive steps to minimise the risk of absences from work through ill-health.

This is one of the best courses I have been on. The content has been very relevant and practical which will help me in my role and also in my personal life. The instructors have been engaging; passing on their passion for this subject.

Training course feedback

A pragmatic and common-sense approach is a key factor in why I turn to the firm for advice.


Your approach is one of collaboration, taking your time to understand the issues, and our position, and then working proactively with us in a practical manner.

Your note was clear about the matter and was helpful in forming our review

With his first-hand experience in dealing with all kinds of medical emergencies; Bruce is not only able to provide us with the latest guidelines and techniques but also the kind of personal support you need when facing the stressful situation of how you will react during a medical emergency.

Bruce was extremely knowledgeable and friendly and made the 3 days training really enjoyable. His experience as a paramedic gave us 100% confidence that we were receiving the best possible training.

When I saw Bruce last year I was in a very bad place mentally. For me personally, he came into my life at the right time and if it wasn’t for him I really don’t know if I would be here today. He listened to me and made other people listen and changes were made for the better which helped me, as it improved my life for me. I am in a much better place now and happier in my work and it’s all thanks to Bruce.


Thanks for all your help. Very impressed with how you pressed the negotiations forward on Wednesday to allow us to reach a quick resolution.

App Developer

Your note was very clear about the seemingly complicated and tricky matter and was very helpful in forming our view. Thanks again for your valuable advice and I look forward to working with you in the future.

Finance Director, Manufacturing

I found this course to be excellent. The knowledge I have gained a be so useful for my work and personal. The learning exercises were so good too. It was also beneficial to discuss experiences with others.

Training course feedback

I am highly appreciative of the advice and work I received from Joe Milner and the team at Loch Associates Group.

Joe assisted me with drafting complex supplier contracts and templates for my business and I cannot praise him enough. The work was thorough and Joe’s attention to detail showed he had taken time to really understand what was needed, suggesting ways to adapt them as necessary for our business.

All communications, including from the support team were clear and timely. It was interesting to hear they offer a retainer service, which means Joe can effectively work as the Company’s in-house counsel too, which is a useful service for a business of our size.

Thank you again!

Simon Adby, Nice Work

The firm is unique, bespoke, and provides a fantastic personalised service.

Chambers and Partners

Being a new employer can be very daunting but she gave me the confidence to forge ahead with the process always explaining things in a straight forward manner.

Dave Mac, Employer

Bruce was a very engaging trainer, and very creative in his approach. He had his audience connecting very well. The training course was very interesting. Thank you, Bruce.

First Aid Feedback

Thank you for the superb advice you have provided us with over the years.

Business Owner – Care Sector

I was an attendee of the course and after talking to my colleagues who were there we have all said how eye-opening and informative it was. We found a more interactive approach was beneficial as we could relate and draw from our own experiences.

What is employee health screening?

Employee Health Screening programmes are in-depth health checks and tests to measure an employee’s overall health. They identify health risks amongst staff, helping to prevent and find treatment early.

By implementing these health screening programmes, employees are less likely to take sickness absence and, in turn, will be more motivated to work for the company that cares for them.

How does employee health screening benefit the rest of the workforce?

Although businesses often provide top-level health screening just to directors or executive roles, the implementation of health screenings has far-reaching impacts and benefits for the rest of the company. Companies can provide basic levels of health screenings to other employees, creating a widespread environment of health and wellbeing.

Listed are a few examples of the benefits of companies implementing employee health screening:

  • Helps to build trust, reinforcing the company’s commitment to employees by showing concern and care – improves staff retention, boosts productivity, improves engagement.
  • Reduces absenteeism – with 140 million days of work being lost every year to sickness absence, if employers can identify a serious health problem early, it can be prevented or helped sooner, reducing the time needed off work.
  • Promotes health awareness / healthy habits – an opportunity for employees to reflect on their lifestyle in a safe and honest environment, empowering staff to make proactive choices.
  • Prevention through early detection – identifying chronic health conditions which promotes a healthy workforce.
    Short, convenient, can take place at work.
  • Helps employers learn what type of wellness initiatives their staff want.
  • Boosts productivity and motivation.
