WHA Member Eden Springs UK have taken enormous steps to ensure that their employees’ physical and mental health is boosted during the Covid-19 pandemic.
During lockdown, a large number of their employees were working from home, and continue to do so. They were sent regular health and well-being communications including top tips when working from home, 10 minute desk work outs, and monthly well-being toolkits covering topics such as rest and sleep, back care and active minds.
DSE assessments were carried out for all home working employees, as well as providing all with useful advice on properly setting up a workstation to avoid any problems.
From April – June a company-wide step count challenge has been set up, encouraging employees to work together, get more active and generate some healthy competition between colleagues!
Colleagues from different departments have been forming teams using fabulous names like “Between a Walk and a Hard Place” and “Worst Pace Scenario”, logging their steps and winning prizes.
Weekly online lunch time mindfulness sessions were available to all employees, as well as running 2 NHS Mental Health First Aid courses. Eden Springs now have 17 Managers across the UK who are trained to recognise the signs of mental ill-health and support others to seek the right help.
Eden Springs UK are committed to continuous improvement for all and believe that by investing in training, it encourages employees to build resilience and strengthen their skills for future growth. They offer employees courses in Time Management, Mental Health Awareness, Developing Personal Resilience, Dealing with Change, Customer for Life and Coaching for Performance.
