B. Braun Medical Ltd has been recognised for its contribution to improving and protecting the public’s health by the prestigious Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH).
The leading, Sheffield-based healthcare company has been shortlisted in this year’s Workplace Health & Wellbeing category at the RSPH Health & Wellbeing Awards.
The shortlist recognises the company’s B. Healthy B. Braun campaign which has been running for more than a decade and aims to increase understanding of lifestyle behaviours and create a culture and working conditions which maximise individual health and wellbeing.
The RSPH awards celebrate the positive impact organisations are having on the public’s health, recognising best practice and innovative strategies and initiatives, with the number of entries for the awards up by 60 per cent this year.
Hans Hux, Chairman and Group Chief Executive at B. Braun in the UK said: “For B. Braun, health and wellbeing is more than just something we have to offer, it is at the very heart of who we are.
“We believe our workforce is the foundation of our company’s continued success and we do absolutely everything we can to nurture our employees so they can achieve their best. We are thrilled to have been recognised by the RSPH Health and Wellbeing Awards for this.”
All winners will be revealed at the gala RSPH Awards 2018 event on Thursday 18 October in London. The ceremony will be jointly hosted by RSPH Vice President Professor Lord Patel of Bradford OBE and broadcaster Natasha Kaplinsky.
The winners of the seven categories, based in England, will also be submitted for consideration for the prestigious Public Health Minister’s Award and Public Health England commendations.
