What is wellbeing in the workplace?

Supporting your employees’ health and wellbeing simply means encouraging a positive working environment and reducing workplace stress. There is no set definition for a workplace wellbeing programme – it should be unique to your business.

You can encourage wellbeing in the workplace in several ways, for example offering your team mental health support through Employee Assistance Programmes (EAP) and occupational health services. Employee recognition and an open culture can also promote positive wellbeing at work. Small changes make a huge difference, too. Collaboration spaces, flexible working and providing healthy office snacks are all simple ways to improve your workplace wellbeing.

The value of employee wellbeing

A healthy workplace helps your team to flourish. A wellbeing programme helps employees feel appreciated at work and encourage them to adopt healthy lifestyle habits. It can reduce any work-related stress and promote a positive working environment for everyone.

As a manager, you’ll reap the benefits of a happy workforce too. By promoting wellbeing in the workplace, your team will be more productive, engaged, and happier. You may find reduced absence, improved morale, and a lower staff turnover.

Encouraging a good work-life balance can protect your employees’ physical and mental health. Simple things like ensuring employees have a reasonable workload and that they aren’t facing any unrealistic expectations can improve their wellbeing.

Improving wellbeing in your workplace starts here

With so many people spending the majority of their waking hours at work, looking after your employees’ health and happiness is more important than ever. Here, we can help you to support your team’s health and wellbeing – and suggest ways you can improve it.

Help for the things that matter

We understand that having cancer concerns, mental health issues and muscle, bone and joint conditions can be stressful for your employees. Which is why we want them to speak to us first, usually without the need to see a GP. This improves the speed of diagnosis and minimises worry and absence.

Find out more about our health and wellbeing cover for your employees

Direct Access telephone services are available as long as the symptoms are covered under the policy. If your cover excludes conditions you had before your policy started, we’ll ask you to provide evidence from your GP that your symptoms are not pre-existing for a period of up to two years from policy start date (or five years in the case of mental health). We can then refer you to a consultant or therapist through the Direct Access service. Always call us first to check your eligibility.

  2. Subject to these terms and conditions, eligible clients will receive access to one free Bupa Be.Reassured Health Assessment (the “Health Assessment”) for each main member (“Members”) covered when purchasing a new Bupa Select Company PMI Policy (the “Select Policy”) for up to 10 members (the “Offer”). The Offer cannot be used against any other Bupa product or service. Bupa Health Assessments are provided by Bupa Occupational Health Limited.
  3. The Offer is available to UK registered small or medium sized corporate entities (including, for example, companies, partnerships, and associations) covering between 2 and 10 Members inclusive (“SMEs”) who purchase a new Select Policy directly from Bupa.

    •      b. SME clients who purchase their Select Policy through an intermediary; or
    •      c. existing Bupa clients who hold a policy for any Bupa product or service.
  5. Free Health Assessments must be booked on or before the date falling 3 months after the Select Policy start date (the “Booking Period”) and will be available during this period subject to the Select Policy being active.
  6. The Offer is only available for new or switching SME clients for whom a quote is provided for a Select Policy between 1 July 2022 and 29 July 2022 inclusive. Quotes are valid for 28 days and the Select Policy must have a start date between 1 July 2022 and 29 July 2022 inclusive. Bupa’s standard Terms of Business and Bupa Select Policy Terms & Conditions will apply.
  7. The Offer will not be applied in subsequent policy years and will not be available to Members who are added to the Select Policy after it has started. Members who are removed from the Select policy will no longer be eligible to claim a free Health Assessment. If you wish to continue to have access to Health Assessments for Members after the Booking Period, or if you wish to offer Health Assessments to new joiners after the Select Policy start date, you must request this and pay any applicable fees and charges.
  8. Health Assessments are carried out at Bupa Health Centres. Not all types of Health Assessments are available at each Bupa Health Centre. For details of our Health Assessments, see and for the locations of Bupa’s Health Centres, see

  10. A cancellation policy applies to all Health Assessments booked but not attended. Members can change or cancel their Health Assessment appointment up to 5 working days before their scheduled appointment. If the Member cancels with less than 5 working days’ notice, or does not attend the appointment, the Member will lose eligibility for the free Health Assessment.
  11. Bupa reserves the right to decline to offer a Select Policy in its absolute discretion, and Bupa’s decision regarding any aspect of this promotion is final.
  12. Bupa reserves the right to cancel, suspend, amend or withdraw the Offer at any point without prior notice.
  13. The Offer is non-exchangeable, non-transferable, has no cash value/alternative and cannot be used in conjunction with any other promotions or offers except for Bupa’s free 2-year fixed price offer (the “Fixed Price Offer”) which allows new SME clients to fix the price of the Select Policy for 2 years subject to separate terms and conditions. The Fixed Price Offer is not available for the following:
    •      a. SME clients who are switching from an alternative company health insurance provider; or
    •      b. SME clients who purchase their Select Policy through an intermediary; or
    •      c. existing Bupa clients who hold a policy for any Bupa product or service for the benefit of their employees.
  14. The Fixed Price Offer guarantees the price of the Select Policy for 2 years. However, this is not protected from any increases in Insurance Premium Tax (“IPT”) at the first renewal. Changes to Members on the Select Policy made during the 2-year fixed period may also affect the price at the first renewal, although the rate per member will remain fixed. Examples of changes to the Select Policy include (but are not limited to): adding or removing members from the Select Policy, complimentary babies becoming paid-for child dependants at the first renewal, and child-dependants reaching the age of 24 during the first fixed year who would then be required to pay the adult rate in the second fixed year.
  15. Please note, you may not be able to amend the benefit options of the Select Policy at your first renewal when choosing the Fixed Price Offer. Examples of benefit options include facility access, out-patient limits and levels of excess.
  16. When calculating renewal prices for a Select Policy after the Fixed Price Offer has ended, Bupa considers additional factors such as (but not limited to) claims history, age of members, the rising cost of healthcare and IPT, which will be factored into each year’s renewal subscription.
  17. Bupa will use any personal information in accordance with its privacy notice which can be found at
  18. To the fullest extent permitted by law, Bupa and its group companies shall not be liable to the SME client or any of its employees for any claims, damages or any other losses whatsoever under or in connection with the operation of the Offer.
  19. These terms & conditions shall be governed by English law and the parties submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.
