Xtratherm has achieved the Workplace Wellbeing Charter. The Workplace Wellbeing Charter is endorsed by the UK Department of Health and is widely recognised as the business standard for workplace wellbeing across the UK. This is as part of a commitment by Xtratherm to provide the newest and highest standards of workplace wellness, health, and safety to its employees. The Workplace Wellbeing Charter is an evidence based accreditation and award that recognises UK employers for investing in workplace health and wellbeing. Its aim is to help business benchmark workplace wellbeing activity through a set of systematic and methodical steps. The framework includes a self assessment, an onsite assessment from an approved external assessor, and culminates with a report that outlines areas for improvement allowing your business to chart its way to success. The accreditation takes a holistic approach, focusing on eight key areas and how they impact our business. These eight areas of improvement are leadership, absence management, smoke free, physical activity, health & safety, mental health, healthy eating, and intoxicants.
Speaking on the Workplace Wellbeing Charter process, Xtratherm HR Manager, Jennifer Smith said: It is becoming increasingly apparent that business leaders in the UK need to make the health and wellbeing of their employees a top priority. This is why we are so excited to sign up to Workplace Wellbeing Charter, with the ultimate aim of raising the standards of employee health, wellbeing, and safety across all aspects of our business. We hope that our staff will soon begin to feel the tangible benefits of The Workplace Wellbeing Charter, and that we will set an example for other UK businesses by following industry best practice.
