Global health and safety business Cardinus has teamed up with innovative start-up Champion Health to bring new emphasis to the challenge of health and wellbeing in the UK workforce. Following a difficult year and with many changes in the workplace, this is more necessary than ever.
After using the Champion Health platform with their own staff, the team at Cardinus spotted an opportunity that would have a lasting impact by offering it to their customer base.
The partnership with Champion Health extends Cardinus’ profile to include a strong focus on mental health, wellbeing, diet and nutrition and sleep.
Together with Champion Health, Cardinus can now bring a comprehensive range of health and safety solutions to customers, including powerful e-learning and risk assessment programmes in fields like ergonomics, fire safety, travel safety, fleet risk, and HR.
And with changes to the workplace following unprecedented disruption from COVID-19, the focus on employee health and wellbeing has never been clearer.
Over the course of the pandemic, both Champion Health and Cardinus Risk Management have aimed to support employers and employees to improve their wellbeing.
The partners worked together to develop the Coronavirus Advice Tool, a digital advice platform to reduce risk and improve health due to Coronavirus. So far this has seen over 1,500 people register and has been viewed nearly 5,000 times.
Demand has also increased for Champion Health’s digital wellbeing assessment platform, up 1,000% since lockdown began, demonstrating the shift in workplace wellbeing from a “nice to have” to a “need to have”. This has led Champion Health to launch their highly-anticipated Champion Employer Scheme; an accreditation that recognises and rewards organisations who committed to making a difference to employee wellbeing.
Meanwhile, Cardinus created their COVID-19 Health and Safety Hub, providing advice and guidance for organisations in dealing with the health and safety implications of COVID. The Hub reached over 20,000 people, with over 3,000 users taking advantage of the free resources to support their initiatives and improve health and safety.
Andy Hawkes, Cardinus Risk Management CEO, said of the partnership:
“We are thrilled to be working closely with Harry and the Champion Health team to support clients who are looking for a simple online mental health and wellbeing solution to complement our ergonomics expertise.”
When asked about the partnership Harry Bliss said:
“It’s a significant opportunity to partner with a world-leading company in workplace ergonomics. We know the impact that our approach to workplace health has and it’s great to be partnered with Cardinus as we both look to benefit people, businesses and society.”
Together Cardinus and Champion Health will ensure that health and wellbeing is given the prominence it deserves in organisations and will fill the gap left by traditional health and safety solution providers.
