Submitted: 20 December, 2011

Each year Health Safety and Performance include a section on health and wellbeing within the GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Corporate Responsibility Report. GSK is a member of the Business in the Community (BITC) Work Well Campaign Steering Group and has been actively involved in developing Public Reporting Guidelines. http://www.bitc.org.uk/resources/publications/reporting_guidelines.html The key principles are that employee wellness and engagement management best practice is defined according to the following principles;1. Demonstrating a robust employee wellness and engagement strategy linked to securing business objectives. 2. Ensuring a strategic approach to skills and talent that meets current and future business needs. 3. Ensuring employee communication and voice supports engagement. 4. Taking a proactive approach to building physical and psychological resilience to support sustainable performance. 5. Providing a safe and pleasant environment that supports wellness and productivity.We use data from the evaluation studies of our leading Energy and Resilience programmes which clearly show that behaviours have improved following our programmes. The improvement was statistically significant. Staff whose leaders had taken the Energy and Resilience courses were a lot more positive when commenting on management's behaviours than those whose leaders had not.The results of the employee survey are covered in the annual Corporate Social Responsibility report which is available online and in printed format. Included in this survey are 11 health related questions. There are internal management reports. We plan to include data from our other health and wellbeing programmes and sickness absence data next year once agreed with our Human Resources department.
