NHS Healthy Working Lives Silver Award

Our commitment to the health and wellbeing of our employees has been recognised with an NHS Healthy Working Lives Silver Award.

This award is the result of efforts to encourage physical activity and healthier food choices, achieved through our Cycle to Work scheme, Local and Aberdeen City Gym Memberships, participation in activity sponsorships,  with availability of healthy food options in the kitchen, alternative healthier baking options  – with samples – and participation by various levels of management at Mental Health Training.

Not to rest on our laurels, our Healthy Working Lives group is already working on a plan to get us to Gold.

Group coordinator Ian Somers said:” Obtaining our Gold award will benefit everyone in the company as it maintains all the activities required for Bronze and Silver and introduces additional compulsory requirements.

“Our office-based support staff covers a wide age range from teenager through to an 80 plus year old who have different wellbeing requirements that are actively engaged in delivering long term benefits. If the wellbeing of individuals is being invested in by the company the business will similarly enjoy the benefits from longevity of employment. As well as being committed to ensuring we all go home safe, we are committed to going home fit and healthy to enjoy our work and leisure time.”
