Excellence in Workplace Wellbeing Award
June 24, 2018
We were delighted to win the Excellence in Voluntary, Community or Social Enterprise Workplace Wellbeing Award at the Inspire Wellbeing Awards in Belfast recently.
Inspire Wellbeing, a charity and social enterprise based in Northern Ireland, hosted the Workplace Wellbeing Awards to recognise the efforts made by many organisations that go the extra mile to protect and nurture the mental health and wellbeing of employees.
Our vision is for ‘A prosperous, dynamic, healthy Draperstown community’ and as such we have an ethos that puts ‘people first’. We have implemented a range of initiatives aimed at developing a culture where our staff lead more healthy, balanced lives. Initiatives include annual staff health checks, eye checks and flu vaccinations, fresh fruit and health information boards in all offices, lunchtime walking groups, stress management/relaxation and mindfulness workshops, health related team days and access to a cycle to work scheme. A staff intranet is the focal point for our daily activities and offers health and lifestyle related tips/advice as well as raising awareness of health issues that may affect staff or someone they know.
Adele McIvor advises “We are delighted to receive this award in recognition of the support we offer our staff. They are our greatest asset and we want to do our best to ensure that they lead healthy, balanced lifestyles.”
