Case study: Wellbeing day is launchpad for Inmarsat

Mobile satellite operator Inmarsat recognises the importance of promoting its health and wellbeing initiatives for employees to increase take-up.

The organisation gives its 400 UK staff the chance to take part in health initiatives throughout the year. It has a
musculoskeletal programme that offers information on back care and ergonomics.

Inmarsat has found an annual wellbeing day to be effective in engaging staff with the benefits.

The wellbeing day, which it has staged for the past six years, sees health professionals such as the company doctor and occupational health nurses spend the whole day onsite.

At the event, employees can also take advantage of free fresh fruit and vegetables.

Lloydeth Newell, health and safety manager, says: “In order to have a wealthy company, we must first have a healthy workforce.”
