In this article in HR Director the author discusses businesses rates, which are increasingly delivered directly to local councils. The author highlights that those councils will have an obligation to commit a percentage of the rates to public health.
Employee health is also looked at and the article states that employee health is a wider issue than merely a financial one. Healthier employees are happier employees and employee happiness is intrinsically linked to productivity and therefore revenue – but it is also related to important issues like business reputation, ease of recruitment and general morale. The article cites The Marmot Review.
