Speaking about the award, our Chief Executive, Simon Blake OBE, said,
“As a leading mental health social enterprise, we are proud to be listed as one of the top 250 organisations in the UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Wellbeing (2022) by Great Place to Work®."
“As a social enterprise, we work with companies of all sizes across all sectors to help them develop workplace wellbeing strategies through our diagnostic service, Startwell, and our training. This listing shows our teams feel we walk the talk! If they didn’t, we would have some serious questions to ask ourselves."
“Since April 2021, our Instructor Members have trained over 85,000 people as Mental Health First Aiders and a further 133,000 in mental health skills and awareness. This is phenomenal in ‘normal’ circumstances, and especially so in the context of a global pandemic. We could not have achieved any of this without the hard work and agility of our staff. Our core belief is that wellbeing and productivity fuel one another."
“Of course, we are always looking at how we can improve, and this recognition spurs us on to constantly strive for an evolving, people centred approach to workplace wellbeing underpinned by equity.”
