We have commissioned Optima to develop and deliver our Bolder Healthier Workplace Champions programme following a very impressive tender. This set out their approach to working with businesses to train staff as champions to support colleagues improve and maintain their health and wellbeing in a range of ways, including mental health, weight management and healthy eating. While we have worked with Optima, they have been committed and innovative in their approach, showing a real dedication to the work and an excellent understanding of what we are trying to achieve together. The team has been very engaging, offering solutions quickly and often answering questions before we have them. We’re looking forward to continuing to build the programme alongside them.
