About this pledge

VGC recognise that risks to our workforce extend beyond those which are controlled by a risk assessment at the place of work. We fully support our workforce and the industries that we work in, promoting awareness of personal wellbeing and that of the challenges we all face in our work and personal life. These can manifest into a more serious mental health condition if not addressed swiftly.

We will with senior management’s commitment and our wellbeing champions’ support, remove the barriers to the stigma surrounding mental health issues.

As part of our strategic direction in promoting wellness in our workplaces, together with our charity and partner “State of Mind Sport”, we will continue to promote the importance of maintaining good physical and mental health through targeted campaigns and ongoing review of our performance through monitoring and engagement with our workforce.
