Health at work policy unit

Client: Napp Pharmaceutical Group

The Health at Work Policy Unit (HWPU) provides evidence-based policy recommendations and commentary on contemporary issues around health, wellbeing and work. It draws on The Work Foundation’s substantial expertise in workforce health, its reputation in the health and wellbeing arena and its relationships with policy makers. The HWPU aims to provide an independent, authoritative and evidence-based voice capable of articulating the views of all stakeholders.

It does this through three main functions:

  • The production of ‘white papers’ which draw on pre-existing literature and data and are informed by expert advice, in order to form innovative, insightful and practical policy recommendations
  • Responding to and influencing political debate
  • Acting as a repository for information, good practice and evidence-based solutions, and monitoring and publicising national, regional or local initiatives.

By thinking big, we hope to form new and innovative policy recommendations which can genuinely alter the attitudes and behaviour of policy makers, health professionals, employers and individuals towards workforce health.

The HWPU is supported by Napp Pharmaceutical Group.
