Improving the health and wellbeing of your employees

Employee health and wellbeing matters. That's why we work with businesses to access a range of support. 

Get in touch to arrange a workplace visit where an advisor will explore workplace health and how you can make changes to fit your business. 

It's great to start with an employee health and wellbeing survey to identify what matters the most to your staff. When you receive your analysis report, an advisor will help to identify support that's right for your business.

Harris and Co Chartered Accountants mental health first-aiders

Over the last few years, mental health has become a topic of focus for businesses. Harris and Co Chartered Accountants recently sent six team members to complete a two-day mental health first aid course. Certified by MHFA England and funded by Chilypep.

The training covers in-depth skills for providing first aid to people who may be facing mental health issues. It's given them knowledge of where they can signpost people struggling with their thoughts and feelings.

“We're really keen to ensure we offer a friendly and welcoming place. Where our employees can thrive to be their best. Whilst providing an outstanding support service to our clients."

Thanks to our involvement with the Be Well @ Work programme, we're able to find out about local events. Including this mental health first aid course. It’s great to now have six mental health first aiders and we'd strongly encourage other businesses to get involved."

Euroglaze Staff Wellbeing Surveys

"Following the lockdowns, more than ever, we're aware of the importance of staff welfare. But where to start?"

"The Be Well @ Work scheme helped us with an employee health and wellbeing survey. It showed the main areas staff wanted more details and guidance. It was quick and easy to convey and encouraged them to think about their lifestyles. The results were collated on our behalf, and it was interesting to find issues of concern. It helped us with a starting point of what support our employees would value most.”

"Thanks to networking and making contacts through the programme, we've been able to offer:

  • Mental health support.
  • Physiotherapy.
  • Mindfulness sessions.
  • Increased exercise.
  • Health MOTs.

...and much, much more."
