EXCLUSIVE: Public and regulated services provider Amey has introduced new wellbeing initiatives to improve the health and wellbeing of its 21,000 members of staff.
The new initiatives, provided by The Tonic and implemented from July, include health and wellbeing days, as well as health assessments, mindfulness training, and injury clinics.
The initiatives build on Amey’s wider wellbeing programme, which offers both online and offline resources such as factsheets, top tips and podcasts.
The programme also includes resilience workshops, a network of wellbeing champions and an organisation-wide healthy eating plan.
Jana Mesarosova, HR manager at Amey said: “Investing in the wellbeing of our people is more important than ever, with an emphasis on helping colleagues feel motivated, engaged and healthy.
“Amey’s wellbeing programme is simple; it seeks to improve performance by working together to create an environment where people are supported to perform to the best of their abilities.
“The programme is very popular and usage has increased year on year since the launch, and has had a positive impact on overall employee engagement and absence rates.”
Health and Wellbeing works well with office staff; this is not the case for blue collar workers – and I would love to see Amey’s take up from the council workers – as I can assure you Amey’s council sites are not aware of this initiative.
