Tony Deans, CFO, Capgemini UK said: 
“Being the CFO of a large UK Company like Capgemini I consider that any investment needs to make a return and a healthy workplace investment is certainly no different.  With our programme we have financial returns through lower absenteeism through sickness, but we also have employees who appreciate that they are well supported in a number of aspects in their workplace and others who have taken up the challenge to be fitter and healthier through changing their lifestyle as a result of their increased awareness.  All of which has exceeded any return I expected from the outset which I am truly delighted with.”

Ruth South, Employee Benefits Manager, Capgemini UK, added: 
“I am delighted that Capgemini has been recognised for the commitment we have to the Health and Wellbeing of our People. We strive for excellence in this area and as a company will continue to ensure that the health and wellbeing of our employees remains at the forefront of our objectives’
Howard Hughes from Simplyhealth said: “We run this award scheme because we want to recognise and encourage companies to care about the health of their people. We believe that companies can make a positive contribution to the health of our nation. Congratulations to Capgemini UK on achieving Simplyhealth Healthy Workplace status and demonstrating that the health and wellbeing of its employees is fundamental.”
