Metromail held the Health and Wellbeing Roadshow at its Seaham premises, as part of the North East Better Health at Work Award.
A string of health-related companies packed into Metromail with representatives from each speaking to workers on a range of topics.
Debbie Charlton, Metromail’s performance evaluation manager, said: “Staff health and wellbeing is a big part of what we’re about here at Metromail because a healthy and happy workforce is a more productive and functioning workforce.
“We wanted our staff to take half-an-hour or an hour out of their working day at the roadshow to look at any health issues which may be a concern to them, and also to pck up tips on how they can be a healthier version of themselves.
She added: “We had a great response from staff, with dozens of them taking the opportunity to have a look around and chat with the different representatives.”
The activities which have helped Metromail scoop a silver award include a weight-loss programme, handing out free fruit on Mondays, and over 40 per cent of the workforce taking part in a cycle to work scheme. Mental health and suicide assistance courses were also undertaken by some members of staff.
The award is part of a regional scheme which recognises employers that motivate workers in developing a culture of health and wellbeing, and is a partnership between the NHS and local businesses open to all organisations regardless of business size or sector.
