What is the Women’s Workplace Wellness project? 

The UK Government’s Women’s Health Strategy published in 2022 highlighted the importance of supporting women’s reproductive health in the workplace and the impact it has on productivity, health and wellbeing, staff retention and development.  

By taking steps to look after women’s health in the workplace, you will achieve real benefits for your small business and your workforce.   

We are developing resources and information to support small and medium-sized businesses to implement meaningful changes which will provide valuable results for their organisation.   

We have worked with the SME community since 1996, with a particular focus on the challenges and opportunities faced by women in the workplace. This includes understanding the health and social factors that restrict progression and business growth. We are building on in-depth research in these areas to give you the tools to create a workplace where women can reach their true potential, and business can reach new heights as a result.     

Our team of small business professionals is working closely with clinical and legal experts as well as SME owners to develop easily accessible and relevant resources, that will deliver real progress for the small business community and wider UK economy.   

“Women have specific healthcare needs, compared to their male counterparts, and despite women making up over half of the workforce in the UK, most SMEs do not understand the scale of the support and flexibility required. 

“This project is vital in effecting positive change within SMEs in the UK, helping to break down taboos around women’s reproductive health, delivering better outcomes for women’s equality, and – fundamentally – improving business performance as a direct result.” 

Maggie O’Carroll, CEO of The Women’s Organisation 

“Women’s health and wellbeing is an important topic for people to be aware of – to take back to their workplaces, to look at their staff and what might be affecting them. Employers need to think about how they can make the lives of their employees better, because it helps their businesses to be better. If we don’t, we’re in danger of losing some very capable and experienced women from the workforce – and that would be damaging to all of us.” 

Alison Lobb, Managing Partner, Morecrofts
