Best Company
to work for

His own experience of the lack of support for people with family and friends dealing with mental health problems prompted Rich Andrews to set up Healios in 2013.

The company is an online provider of mental health and neurodevelopmental services as a partner to the NHS.

Rich combined his knowledge and experience of healthcare environments with a passion for wellbeing, science and technology to develop innovative services that empower people to live healthier lives.

Healios began with a small team in Southampton and used the concept of virtual working to attract talented staff, regardless of location. The company now employs more than 200 people, but retains its start-up spirit of innovation and atmosphere of collegiality.

It is a workplace that knows that its people are its most important asset and is committed to being somewhere employees can be themselves, do their best work, and thrive.

As a virtual-working organisation with flexible working hours, Healios supports its staff to have a healthy work-life balance and invites employees to take advantage of opportunities, such as meditation, yoga and a company-endorsed walk every week, to create a sense of community.

This sense of community and a working atmosphere that values innovation makes Healios a special place to work.

Featured Workplace Factors

My Manager

87% of staff agreed

I have confidence in the leadership skills of my manager

Healios is launching its first management development programme. The People Manager learning pathway is based on an analysis of the day-to-day challenges and opportunities managers face. The scheme aims to enable managers to act as stewards for the company's culture and engender an atmosphere in which all employees thrive.

Personal Growth

77% of staff agreed

This job is good for my own personal growth

Last year, Healios launched the Healios Academy, a career-development initiative for experienced clinicians to develop autism assessment skills. The academy was set up to address Helios's need to expand its neurodevelopmental team, as a result of unprecedented demand for its assessment services.

Wellbeing

72% of staff agreed

I am happy with the balance between my work and home life

Concerns were raised about physical and mental wellbeing when lockdown restrictions precluded employees from leaving home. Staff spearheaded a Healios group on an exercise tracking app to support and generate fitness-related activities and ideas. The company continued its weekly mindfulness sessions, fortnightly yoga classes and “Walking Wednesdays”.
