At a time of uncertainty and a period of change for many employees, we are encouraging you to sign up to our free workplace health and wellbeing support service, funded by the Public Health Agency.
Health@Work NI, part of the Developing Healthy Communities family, is delivering the Health and Wellbeing Support Programme in the Western HSC Trust area, while Chest, Heart & Stroke is the provider for the rest of Northern Ireland.
Participating workplaces will receive:
GES is a leading supplier of Abrasive Wear Plate and Special Steels to the mining, construction, agriculture and recycling industries.
We carried out an engagement survey with employees and developed our Health and Wellbeing Plan. Activities implemented include Health and Wellbeing Committee, Health Checks, Hearing Checks, Mental Health First Aid Training, Cancer Awareness information sessions, No Smoking Campaign and Health Eating initiatives.
As well as this, employees took part in charity fundraising Hard As Oak, Football Tournaments, Coffee Mornings and Summer BBQs.
With expert guidance from Health @ Work NI and so many resources available it was easy to implement a fun and informative wellbeing programme to suit all employees.
Braidwater Group is one of Northern Ireland's leading home builders in both social and private housing. Our headquarters are based in Eglinton, Co. Derry, with 99 employees.
We've really seen a change in our company culture - everything from healthy lunch options to yearly health checks. Blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose levels have all improved within the last 12 months of starting the programme.
Our staff have also taken part in mental health first aid training and a range of wellbeing courses. We've offered counselling as a free but mandatory service across all of the construction projects and head office to ensure personnel are having their mental needs addressed; cycle to work schemes have also been introduced; healthy eating is promoted at both at the office and on-site with boxes of fresh fruit distributed across both environments.
“The service provided by Health at Work NI to date has been excellent.
"It has encouraged and assisted us in developing several health initiatives throughout the last 12 months which have included healthy eating, health MOTs, mental health first aider training, mindfulness programmes and yoga.
"With the assistance of the workplace health service it was all organised with ease, which would have proved a much more difficult experience without such a service being available. Looking forward to what the next 12 months has to offer.”
