Case study: BT connects with staff health

As part of its Work Fit programme, BT Group promotes health and wellbeing to its 75,600 UK staff each year, covering topics such as cardiovascular health, diabetes, cancer, smoking, mental health and physical activity.

The programme is communicated through BT’s intranet site, weekly emails, employee newsletters, leaflets and roadshows. BT also offers its 11,000 managers topic guides and a one-day training course on mental health.

Catherine Kilfedder, group health adviser at BT, says: “We take them through a three-level approach: the first level is to promote good health and wellbeing, the second is to detect signs of deteriorating health at an early stage, and the third is to know and understand all the support resources available.”
