Colleague health events
8 February 2019
We want to help our colleagues look after their physical and mental wellbeing so they can be at their best at work and at home. One way in which we help colleagues is through regular health events.
In January we held our 7th colleague health event in the UK. For example colleagues were provided with tools for mental health to help retrain their mind using ‘Change your Habits’, a new Mindapples e-learning course.
We provided free fruit throughout the event, which has to date resulted in over 24 million pieces of fruit being given away to colleagues. We also launched Gympass, a subsidised membership scheme for colleagues at a range of gyms and health clubs nationwide, as well as offering free Nuffield mini health checks, discounted flu jabs and tips on how to stop smoking. Derek Sarno, creator of our Wicked Kitchen range, also provided tips for plant-based eating.
Throughout the year colleagues have access to many other services that we provide, such as advice on nutrition and mental health awareness training. To date colleagues have accessed Mindapples e-learning over 17,000 times since it launched. Also available are hints and tips on nutrition.
