Waterman Aspen is committed to providing employees with a safe, healthy and supportive environment in which to work.
We have a dedicated leadership team who are responsible for ensuring that our employees’ Mental Health and Wellbeing is continually at the heart of our business.
This is why in August 2020, we signed the Building Mental Health Charter to reinforce our commitment to Mental Health which underpins the values of our business and supports the people within it, and across the industry.
We informally share relevant information to our employees throughout the year but more formally via our newsletter, Open Up which is dedicated solely to Mental Health and Wellbeing.
Along with utilising our team of trained Mental Health First Aiders, our employees and their household are also able to reach out to our Employee Assist programme for confidential counselling services on matters such as depression, anxiety, physical health, work life etc 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Our employees are also able to reach out to our own internal, professionally qualified, dedicated specialist if they wish.
We have a Mental Health and Wellbeing Policy which is under continual review and we ensure that our relevant policies align with this.
The Company recognise that the health and wellbeing of our employees is important and as such, we commit to providing a supportive workplace culture where healthy lifestyle choices are valued and encouraged.
Waterman Aspen was one of 114 organisations to take part in Mind’s fifth annual Workplace Wellbeing Index, which is a benchmark of best policy and practice, celebrating the good work employers are doing to promote and support positive mental health, and providing key recommendations on the specific areas where there is room to improve. We are very pleased and proud to announce that we have achieved the Silver Award – celebrating our excellent work in promoting staff mental health in the workplace.
