LONDON, UK / ACCESSWIRE / October 27, 2022 / Physitrack (STO:PTRK) Champion Health, a leading workplace health platform and part of Physitrack PLC, today announces it has entered into a partnership with Currys PLC, the leading omnichannel retailer of technology products and services, to support and improve the wellbeing of Currys' 15,000+ employees across the UK&I. Currys operates online and through 830 stores in 8 countries, and is the owner of Nordic brands Elkjøp, Elgiganten and Gigantti.

Every Currys colleague will receive a unique health report, including a snapshot of their overall health and a tailored wellbeing action plan.

Champion Health covers every aspect of wellbeing, from mental health, sleep, women's health, men's health, financial wellbeing, performance, activity, energy levels, nutrition, parenting, musculoskeletal health, leadership, cardiovascular health, cognitive functioning and more.
Harry Bliss, CEO and co-founder of Champion Health, comments:
"I'm thrilled that Currys has chosen Champion Health to support the wellbeing of their 15,000+ employees and 45,000 friends and family."
"Investing in the Champion Health platform demonstrates Currys' commitment to supporting their people. At such an uncertain time worldwide, it's never been more important to invest in our people."
"The team at Currys will soon gain access to our award-winning digital platform, described as ‘The Netflix of Wellbeing', and I'm looking forward to seeing what they jump into first, whether that's workouts with Olympians or calming mindfulness sessions."
"Currys now stands alongside global organisations - like Clyde & Co and SITA - as part of a community of employers supporting 2 million lives. Together, we share a vision to make wellbeing more inclusive, accessible and engaging."
Henrik Molin, CEO and co-founder of Champion Health's parent company, Physitrack, says:
"It's amazing to see Champion and Currys come together this way to elevate the wellbeing on tens of thousands of people. Initiatives such as these are incredibly important in the uncertain and stressful times the world is in right now and we are delighted that we can help major organisations such as Currys provide tools for their most valuable asset - their people - to get through them."
Paula Coughlan, Chief People, Communications & Sustainability Officer at Currys said:
"Despite these challenging times, we are continuing to invest to help keep everyone safe, happy and well with a new wellbeing partnership with Champion Health. We know that the cost-of-living crisis will have an impact on wellbeing, and on top of our existing package of support which includes direct financial support, financial wellbeing, 1,400 Mental Health Trained colleagues and our Wellbeing Corner, this partnership delivers on our promise to support colleagues further. Through Champion Health, colleagues will have personalised wellbeing plans from a wide range of leading experts for free. The platform will give everyone personalised content and support across all the key areas of wellbeing, helping colleagues to be at their very best both inside and outside of work."
Steve Bird, Wellbeing Manager at Currys said:
"I am so proud to work for an organisation that continues to invest in the wellbeing of its people. I've found wellbeing apps and platforms incredibly useful, but the subscriptions beyond free trial periods can really add up. Champion Health is free to access, and I can't wait for thousands of colleagues and their loved ones to benefit from all the great content, especially the mental wellbeing support which has such a big impact on wellbeing as a whole."
