After running BeUpstanding, staff are happier, more energetic and more optimistic. I would recommend BeUpstanding to other workplaces as it is low cost and easy to implement with all the resources easily available.”
Alyson, Acting HIS Manager

BeUpstanding was easy to implement and follow, and gave us the opportunity to get more movement into our days and to value our health at work which has resulted in a happier and more productive work environment. We would absolutely recommend the program.”
Danielle, Project Officer

I had never delivered a health and wellbeing program before, so I used the BeUpstanding toolkit resources, outlining key evidence and research to help build the case for taking part in the program.”
