The organisation aims to achieve employee wellbeing through a supportive culture that will involve the provision of relevant training to ensure that healthy working practices are developed and implemented by working in partnership with employees and staff side organisations.
We are committed to protecting, maintaining and promoting the health and wellbeing of all employees. Employee wellbeing is important to us because the way we treat our employees has an important impact on providing high quality services to patients. This is because absence from work is costly to the organisation both financially and in terms of providing the level of service that we would wish to provide.
As part of our commitment to the health and wellbeing of all staff, we ask that all employees are aware of their individual responsibility to their colleagues and should ensure the wellbeing of their colleagues through their words and their actions.
We have now signed the Mindful Employer Charter which aims to increase awareness of mental health in the workplace.
We have also been accredited with the ‘Two Ticks’ disability awareness symbol. This identifies us as an organisation that has committed to supporting the employment of disabled people by; interviewing all disabled applicants and considering them on their abilities; to make every effort when employees become disabled to make sure they stay in employment and; to ensure that all employees develop the appropriate level of disability awareness.
