‘My Self Care' was the theme of Circle Health Group's initiative to maintain employee wellbeing during the pandemic.

The initiative from the UK's largest independent healthcare provider focused on supporting employees both at work and at home, providing resources and toolkits to support the physical, financial, and mental wellbeing of staff.

It has since evolved into a holistic online wellbeing offering, comprising of a hub accessible to all staff 24/7 and containing articles and information designed to help maintain a healthy and balanced lifestyle, as well as promoting mindfulness practices and art therapy to de-stress and refocus.

Founded in 2004 by a group of doctors and managers who believed in a fresh approach to healthcare, Circle Health Group's commitment to wellbeing is part of its constant quest to improve its employee offering and to empower each staff member to make a difference.

As such, in 2020 it moved much of its training delivery online, enabling its people to access almost its entire learning and development curriculum. Where face-to-face clinical training was required, this was carried out in Covid-secure ways.

The organisation delivered a number of specific bespoke training programmes in direct response to the pandemic, including ‘Better Never Stops' – a leadership support programme to support leaders in challenging situations. The organisation's agility enabled the continuation of their clinical and non-clinical apprenticeships programmes throughout the pandemic.
