We provide a number of services to support our staffs’ health and wellbeing. These include:
Regular seminars offering practical advice on work and family issues, and including techniques such as mindfulness.
An employee assistance programme offering counselling and support.
Accredited in-house counsellors.
In 2016, we were shortlisted in the BITC Responsible Business Awards for the Bupa Wellbeing at Work Award. Our work to challenge mental health stigma was highlighted, including our internal training for line managers and the work we’ve done in partnership with mental health charities and our Mental Health Network. Since then we have produced a short film in which some of our staff talk about their mental health experiences.
We have also shared information on our approach to wellbeing with other organisations. We provided a case study for the City Mental Health Alliance, and examples of the way we approach mental health for the World Economic Forum Global Agenda Council on Mental Health.
