Work is a key building block to health and wellbeing. In turn being in good health supports work and the economy. But it is not just any type of work that is important to health and wellbeing – it is about fair work. Fair work is where workers “are fairly rewarded, heard and represented, secure and able to progress in a healthy, inclusive environment where rights are respected” (Fair Work Wales 2019, p2).
Organisations of all sizes have an important role to play in increasing participation in fair work for a more equal, prosperous, sustainable and greener Wales.
If you are a business or employer and want advice and support on fair work and health and well-being in the workplace Healthy Working Wales can help. We have developed a guide for local and regional agencies to help them understand the actions they can take to increase participation in fair work.
