Since achieving the Workplace Wellbeing Charter in 2015, Extract Technology has continued to make associates’ health and wellbeing agenda priority. The hard work and dedication to this project has paid off with a reaccreditation of the charter status for another two years.
The charter covers eight key areas—leadership, attendance management, health and safety requirements, alcohol and substance misuse, smoking, mental health and stress, healthy eating, and physical activity—that are measured by a commitment, achievement or excellence standard. In the most recent reaccreditation report, all areas received positive feedback and the team achieved an excellence rating in health and safety requirements.
Extract Technology has fully established a Health at Work program offering health MOTs every six months, fitness and healthy food advice, and a corporate membership deal with local council to offer membership for gym and leisure facilities at discount rates.
Jaime Larder, HR Officer, comments:
“It’s a fantastic achievement for the company to be re-accredited with the Workplace Wellbeing Charter. It not only shows the commitment for health and wellbeing on the agenda for the business but shows how our associates have been key in driving healthier, positive changes and initiatives for themselves and in the workplace.
We will continue to embrace the principals of the charter to further enhance and develop health and wellbeing into our company.
I would like to thank all involved for their continued support and assistance.”
Jason Armitage, Finance Director, comments:
“When the company formulated an HR strategy over 5 years ago the main themes identified were associate retention, engagement, communication and a real focus on Organisational Development. To underpin the HR strategy it is very important to the company to have a healthy and happy workforce and we see the continued accreditation to the Workplace Wellbeing Charter as key to facilitating this requirement.
Jaime and her team have provided a real drive and energy to the process, working incredibly hard over the past two years to ensure the charter is communicated and implemented throughout the business. It is nice to see the Workplace Wellbeing Charter improving the workplace for all associates on a daily basis.”
