Our staff’s sense of wellbeing is a priority and integral to the work that we deliver.
To support our employees’ wellbeing we offer a flexible and mobile working approach, where employees are offered an office base for their convenience but are also encouraged to travel, work from home when necessary and meet with colleagues working across the organisation.
Mobile and flexible working means that those who are parents or guardians are able to work flexibly around the school run, staff are able to schedule appointments and work around them and everyone is able to achieve a better work/life balance.
We communicate regularly within our teams and ensure that regular supervision meetings are in place in order to discuss any difficulties and support or offer training when needed.
We are also great advocates for walking meetings; getting outdoors as often as possible, encouraging people to cycle or walk to their offices and meetings.
We recognise that difficulties can arise in our any of our lives and we aim to support our employees if this happens, we do so by offering a bespoke counselling service through Breathe.
We are currently updating our Investors in People standard and we are signatories to the Mindful Employer Charter and are committed to ensuring that we look after the mental health and wellbeing of our staff.
