The Workplace Wellbeing Charter is an opportunity for employers to demonstrate their commitment to the health and well-being of their workforce, whilst providing employers with an easy and clear guide on how to make workplaces a supportive and productive environment in which employees can flourish. These standards reflect best practice and are endorsed nationally by Public Health England.
The Charter takes a holistic approach that includes leadership, culture and communication, as well as health & wellbeing topics such as physical activity, alcohol and mental health. The framework promotes rounded discussions between employer and employees about health, safety and wellbeing.
During the process employees were selected at random to anonymously discuss how they felt the company was performing in this area and we were delighted to receive some of the following comments:
“In previous jobs I haven’t felt valued. I feel really valued here. They tell me on a daily basis!” – Employee of The PC Support Group
“Really nice environment. Everyone gets on well” – – Employee of The PC Support Group
“Good management style. Really understanding and sympathetic. Makes you feel lucky to be here” – – Employee of The PC Support Group
The Wellbeing Charter assessment summarised The PC Support Group’s approach as “The organisation has clearly shown its commitment to the wellbeing of its employees”
