Your Health and Well Being

Your Health and Wellbeing matters to us

At the City of Lincoln Council, we recognise that our staff are our most valuable asset.  Therefore the Council is committed to enhancing and promoting the health and wellbeing of our staff.

We are committed to taking a pro-active approach to workplace health and encourage good workplace practices that support an employee's health and well being and sustaining their physical and mental health.     

Our health and wellbeing strategy

City of Lincoln Council has a health and wellbeing strategy which aims to take a proactive and engaging approach to enhancing the health and wellbeing of our employees.

The objectives of this strategy are:

  • To promote healthier lifestyles, provide prevention, intervention and rehabilitation.
  • To support employees to assess and take personal responsibility for their own health and wellbeing.
  • Providing managers with the knowledge and skills to support their staff, manage attendance and reduce stressors in the workplace
  • To reduce the levels of sickness absence.

We offer an Employee Assistance Programme that employees have access to 24/7 to seek support on a range of topics such as counselling, financial and legal support online or over the telephone.

Employees also have access to mental health first aiders across the Council for immediate help and guidance.

We also offer eye care vouchers for all employees every two years and some vouchers towards the cost of glasses for those identified as needing for sole VDU use. 

The Council works closely with an Occupational Health provider to support with various needs of employees throughout their time with us.
