We are pleased to announce that we have now attained 'Achievement level' in the Healthy Workplace Charter.
The London Healthy Workplace Charter is the first pan-London framework that supports and recognises investment in staff health and wellbeing, partnering local public health resource with employers. NELFT is one of over 200 organisations that have met the standards to date and were awarded with their new level at an awards ceremony on Monday 19 November.
The Trust has made this achievement after a case was put forward by a team of staff including Sue Merchant, Bob Champion, Melody Williams, Chris Shaw and Laura Kemp. Thank you to all of the team for their efforts in helping us to make this achievement.
The Trust was assessed based on its health and wellbeing activities across the entire organisation and was found to be providing a great offering for all its staff.
Bob Champion, executive director of workforce and organisational development, said: “We are really pleased to have gained the next level of the Healthy Workplace Charter, the ‘Achievement Level’ having successfully gained the first level ‘Commitment Level’ earlier this year. The Healthy workplace charter provides a framework to assist organisations to build good practice in staff health and wellbeing and we have demonstrated that here in NELFT significant progress is being made in this area. Through the health and wellbeing ambassadors we are getting a real sense of what matters to staff and are able to respond in a timely manner. We look forward to achieving the last level, the ‘Excellence Level’ in our pursuit of prioritising staff wellbeing.”
