We know our employees are our most important asset and we are continuously focused on proactively supporting your health and wellbeing.

Many factors can influence our physical and psychological health, we have arranged our priorities in 4 areas, each of which has a wide range of initiatives, activities, and support.

  • Listening to you

  • Looking after your mental wellbeing

  • Looking after your physical wellbeing

  • Looking after your general wellbeing

We have implemented wellbeing initiatives and roles such as health champions, mental health first aiders and workplace trauma champions and more across the workforce.

Examples of initiatives and services available for employees include:

The Employee Assistance Programme

A free service which can assist with all of life's ups and downs. Available for employees, their families and any dependents aged 16 to 24. The service is here to give advice on a range of topics and can help with any work or non-work-related issue.


The Manbassadors programme is an initiative delivered by ManHealth and curated by Our Minds Work.

The programme trains male employees to become wellbeing advocates at work, giving men the space and support they need to get help.

Menopause support

Whether you are someone going through menopause or have a colleague or family member suffering from some of the symptoms, there is information, surveys, and a virtual employee group ‘Pause to Support’ here to help.
