Wellbeing Roadshows to Engage Your Whole Workplace

New Leaf Health have been designing and delivering workplace wellbeing roadshows for over 20-years. The roadshows can be used as a great launch platform for any new wellbeing strategy, online programme, employee benefits days or as a structured approach for timely engagement with employees around specific wellbeing topics. The New Leaf Health Roadshow is a dynamic, highly visible event aimed at promoting wellbeing in the workplace.

A Wellbeing Roadshow consists of a number of zones laid out in a marketplace-style. Each zone showcases a different topic in an engaging and interactive way, with participants moving through each area throughout the event. A roadshow consists of two or more of the zones listed below.

Awareness Days

All of the zones below can also be held as a single-topic Awareness Day, perfect to highlight a single issue amongst staff. These days work especially well when combined with national and international awareness campaigns such as Dry January, Movember and Know Your Numbers Week, for example.

Roadshow Zone Options

Employees are really enthusiastic about knowing their health numbers which makes this zone a great attraction that delivers high levels of engagement. We strongly recommend incorporating a Lifestyle Review Zone to help employees track their health numbers and set goals.

Tests completed include:

  • Blood Pressure (clinically validated)
  • Body Fat Analysis
  • Visceral Fat Rating
  • Fat Mass
  • Total Body Water %
  • Body Mass Index
  • Basal Metabolic Rate
  • Metabolic Age

This zone is designed to help people understand the link between how lifestyle and eating habits can affect wellbeing and what can be done to reduce potential health risks and subsequently eat for a healthier tomorrow. The link to positive energy will also be made as performance ‘at work, rest and play’ will inevitably impact on how we live our lives. Activities covered are as follows:

  • Healthy eating to reduce long-term health risks
  • Personal food diary
  • Waist circumference testing
  • Food labelling
  • Portion control
  • Interactive group discussion

During the event our practitioner will facilitate interactive activities and small group discussions to help raise awareness amongst managers and employees and also link to existing support services that serve as excellent additional coping strategies that really can make a difference, such as: EAP, PMI, NHS etc.

The type of activities covered at this zone are as follows:

  • Bio Dots
  • Personality type activity
  • Signs and symptoms of stress
  • Effective coping strategies (including EAP promotion)
  • Stress and lifestyle behaviours
  • Goal Setting and Resilience questionnaire

Regardless of age there’s strong evidence that being physically active can help individuals lead healthier and happier lives. People who do regular activity have a lower risk of many chronic diseases, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke and some cancers. Research shows that physical activity can also boost self-esteem, mood, sleep quality and energy, as well as reducing your risk of stress, depression, dementia and more. Activities covered during the day are as follows:

  • Physical activity review
  • Benefits of activity
  • Activity readiness questionnaire
  • Fun, mini-activity session and strength test
  • Weaving activity into lifestyle discussion
  • 4-week activity programme and goal-setting

Musculoskeletal issues are a serious problem and without education and corrective strategies can lead to challenges to musculoskeletal health. Our specialist engages delegates with interactive educational sessions, visual assessments and practical activities. This zone raises awareness on postural weaknesses with a practical proactive approach. We use core stability balls, resistance bands and postural models to encourage ownership of their musculoskeletal wellbeing. Activities include:

  • Core stability assessment
  • Postural review
  • ‘Lift technique’ model
  • Spine education session
  • ‘Top tips’ for postural improvement

One in two people in the UK will develop cancer during their lifetime. It is important that we raise awareness as lifestyle and early detection are vital for reducing risk.

Our practitioner will facilitate workshops, interactive activities and small group discussions to help raise awareness. The types of activities covered at this session
are as follows:

  • An explanation of the most prominent, male and female cancers
  • Screening programmes available in the UK
  • Lifestyle factors that can reduce the risk of some cancers
  • Self-examination techniques
  • Referral process

Although for the most part moles are healthy, early detection of the small number that undergo change to melanoma is important in avoiding long-term risk to your health.

Melanoma is the 5th most common cancer in the UK with around 13,000 new cases diagnosed each year. Melanoma is a largely preventable disease, but the number of cases has more than quadrupled in the UK over the last thirty years. Our mole check nurse will assess skin areas for attendees and give them a good idea about how to check their skin and skin health – with excellent guidance and referral to GP where necessary.

Our onsite Health Screening options are detailed on subsequent pages of this document but the cholesterol and diabetes testing element is a great addition to any roadshow. We do recommend that a booking process is implemented for this zone, but when delivered as part of a roadshow we can often accommodate additional tests.

Attendees sit on a bike and pedal, which in turns provides the energy for the blender that makes a fresh fruit smoothie for all to enjoy – fun, interactive and demonstrates how easy it is to make a healthy drink, packed with essential vitamins. The bar provides 1 practitioner, a bike and ingredients for approximately 100 smoothies per day. For large events additional smoothies can be added but will require increased funding.

Our highly trained Energy Consultants work to deliver a range of specialist re-energising services for your employees. We offer Energy Boost Massage to help release stress and refresh and Meridian Treatment where the stimulation of key points leaves you wide awake and focused. 10, 15, 20-minute massages are available.

Event Support Package

An eye-catching poster that you can print and display around the workplace advertising the details of the event. Perfect for break rooms, staff intranet and digital displays.

Our Operations Team provide dedicated support in the run-up to the day, ensuring everything is in place to make the event run as smoothly as possible.

Following the event, we produce an anonymised management report that shows the results of any checks that take place on the day, which can be used to identify any health concerns that may be prevailing across the organisation.

“Great day for all. Not only got us off our seats and away from our desks but also helped educate and inform. Would definitely do it again.”
