YORKSHIRE WATER WORKING WITH X-PERT HEALTH TO TACKLE DIABETES
Yorkshire Water is investing in their employee wellbeing programme to help build a healthier and more resilient workforce. As part of this they have teamed up with X-PERT Health to provide award-winning diabetes education and lifestyle support.
Both Yorkshire Water and X-PERT Health agree that education is a vital component in the prevention and management of diabetes, and a crucial investment in healthy living.
Yorkshire Water has approximately 4000 employees. They provide essential water and wastewater services to every corner of the Yorkshire region, and play a key role in the region’s health, wellbeing, and prosperity. That means over 5 million customers, and the millions of people who visit Yorkshire each year, rely on them, every day.
The UK is facing a healthcare and wellbeing crisis. A consequence of the pandemic is the increasing number of people undiagnosed with prediabetes or Type 2 diabetes. With its associated long-term conditions, the potential costs to businesses is huge.
X-PERT Health aims to help employees thrive. Our education utilises interactive learning with self-care tools for a rewarding and enjoyable experience. Our audit results demonstrate improved health and quality of life for participants. This includes weight loss, improved HbA1c, and a reduction in medication.
