About this pledge
As a company we believe that the wellbeing of all of our employees is essential and this includes not only physical but mental health wellbeing. As part of this we are undertaking the employers pledge with Time to Change which is England’s biggest programme to challenge mental health stigma and discrimination and is run by the charities Mind and Rethink Mental Illness.
In order to support our colleagues who may be going through difficult periods or require additional help we now have four fully qualified Mental Health First Aiders and seven Mental Health Champions. There will be a new area on the company web-based portal focusing on all aspects of wellbeing, with access to further information. We will undertake an ongoing programme of awareness briefings, look at ways in which we can support individuals and offer access to support agencies.
