    Bronze Level The Bronze level focuses on providing appropriate information to enable employees to make healthier choices on a variety of topics. Activities have minimal costs but will require commitment to implementing effective policies, procedures, good line manager training and board level engagement. This is an excellent level for a smaller SME sized organisation to achieve. Silver Level The silver level focus on understanding employees health needs and taking direct action to prevent ill-health. At this level more direct actions and training is required to meet the needs to prevent ill health. This is an excellent level for a larger SME and large business to achieve. Gold Level The Gold level focuses on businesses becoming experts in understanding employee health needs. Developing strategies to actively improve employee health and wellbeing in a monitored way. Large businesses should strive to achieve this level.

    Commitment and identifies a health champion to lead. • Agree their approach and carry out the self assessment against the themes framework. • Draw up an action plan and time scales. • On line tool kit with national and local resources to help meet the required criteria
