Health and wellbeing is becoming more and more important in the world we live in today. We receive so much advice from a variety of mediums on the way we should take care of ourselves and generally how we should look after each other in a variety of ways including emotionally, physically and mentally.
Good health is about the mind as well as the body and staying in good health is important to all of us, but is particularly more important in later years.
As an employer we are keen to continue improving and providing support to our workforce to ensure our health and wellbeing programme benefits all of our employees health. Due to our approach in promoting healthier eating and exercise amongst our staff teams together with health check days, we can help to minimise the risk of health concerns.
Many of you will know that addressing mental health has been high on the agenda for Public Health England who have been running a campaign designed to help people assess their own mental wellbeing and learn techniques to reduce stress and improve their emotional resilience.
The leadership team recently received valuable training on increasing their mental resilience with a view to sharing their techniques with their wider staff teams. With this in mind we are looking to develop mental health champions in the future to help address some of the issues experienced by individuals, so if you are interested and would like to help your colleagues, please contact a member of the Human Resources team for further information.
Our ethos on health and wellbeing is clear, by simply promoting good health among workers through our various initiatives, we can create a more positive environment for work; increase morale; increase performance and increase employee engagement.
For more information on our health and wellbeing benefits, please refer to the staff notice boards or contact a member of the Human Resources team.
