A new government initiative is aiming to shrink the multi-billion pound hole in the UK economy caused by illness.

Public Health England (PHE) teamed up with workplace health provider Healthy Working Futures to set out new guidelines for SMEs to promote a healthier workforce.

The advice offers SMEs, which account for 60% of private sector employment, questions on health and wellbeing covering areas such as smoking, fitness and sleep that staff can answer anonymously.

It is hoped the findings would enable a business to assess the specific needs of its workforce and create tailored steps to improve health and wellbeing.

PHE has also worked with Business in the Community to develop guidance for employers on issues including musculoskeletal (MSK) and mental health, in addition to advice on physical activity, diet and weight, drugs, alcohol and tobacco.
