H3. Health & Wellbeing Report
14 October, 2013
Submitted: 10 December, 2013
The Defra annual report is published each July. The most recent report is available to view at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/defra-annual-report-and-accounts-2012-to-2013. The report includes a section on Wellbeing and Managing Attendance which explains wellbeing activities and staff sickness rates (see p 30). Sickness absence is measured in terms of average working days lost per staff year.
Each agency publishes their own annual report and it is our aim that wellbeing and sickness absence rates will be reported in these as well.
In addition to the above, Defra and its executive agencies provide people and wellbeing updates in the Greening Government Commitments Report at: https://whitehall-admin.production.alphagov.co.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/239402/defra-ggc-performance.pdf (see page 6).
