Our wellbeing strategy is centred on the three pillars of Mind, Body and Spirit.
‘Mind’ focusses on emotional and mental wellbeing and we support and seek ways to enhance this for everyone. We recognise that a broad range of factors can influence emotional wellbeing and for this reason, our programme covers a diverse range of areas such as learning, flexible working and mental health.
‘Body’ centres on physical activity and includes hydration, diet and fitness. We encourage our employees to take regular breaks away from their desks and we provide a number of spaces at each location for eating, socialising or even playing table tennis! We also provide free fruit in head office locations, milk for tea and coffee and squash to help you keep you healthy and hydrated.
‘Spirit’ describes the essence of our wellbeing programme, how we share our wellbeing experiences, how teams come together to determine their own wellbeing practices and how we create communities within the Society and use technology to enable this.
