A meeting of 'healthy body healthy business' minds got together yesterday (1st June) to learn strategies on how the healthy and wellbeing of their staff can boost profits.

Guest speaker rugby star Robert Jones MBE shared his own experience about how he has made the transition from pitch to boardroom and how staying fit and healthy can benefit his 'day job' as Director of a successful insurance brokers.

More than 80 people attended the business breakfast organised by Health Challenge Neath Port Talbot at Margam Organgery. Welsh Government Small Workplace awards were also handed out to 4 local companies.

The free event was open to any local business and was also attended by Neath Port Talbot Council Leader and Health Champion Ali Thomas and Chair of ABMU and fellow Champion Win Griffiths.

Speaking after the event, Councillor Thomas said, "We had a great turnout, and I'm sure this is the start of us working more closely with businesses to help them improve their own health and wellbeing as well as that of their staff

Win Griffiths added, "This event gave companies the opportunity to network with like minded businesses and learn strategies to improve the efficiency of their organisation through reduced absenteeism due to ill health and the benefits of a boosted morale from a healthy workforce."
