The Workplace Wellbeing Charter is an opportunity for employers to demonstrate their commitment to the health and well-being of their workforce. The positive impact that employment can have on health and wellbeing is now well documented. There is also strong evidence to show how having a healthy workforce can reduce sickness absence, lower staff turnover and boost productivity – this is good for employers, workers and the wider economy.
Andrew Dwerryhouse, Managing Director commented: “We are genuinely over the moon and will definitely be proud to display our Charter Award. I know that the Wild Thang staff are the companies greatest asset which is why we have invested a substantial amount of time and energy in our wellness program throughout the organization. To be externally audited, verified and awarded with Charter recognition, demonstrates the real commitment we have towards every staff member. One of our first new initiatives is to introduce fruity Monday offering free fresh fruit to all employees along with a number of others planned for the year ahead. A big thank you goes Wild Thang employee Carrie Dwerryhouse who orientated the project internally, the employees that engaged with the project with positive input, and the fantastic Health at Work that provided us with best support & advice of how we could achieve the charter standard.”
