Leading the field in its sector for mental health provision is Midlands-based M Lambe Construction. The family-owned and run business has responded to the poor track record for mental health and male suicide in the industry by hiring a full-time HR and wellbeing manager, Shane Kiely. It is one of the only companies in the sector to do so.

Kiely devotes 50% of his time to overseeing strategies to enhance wellbeing, which so far have included introducing a fitness tracker, raising awareness of mental health and substance abuse and setting wellbeing targets. A full-time counsellor is also employed on a retainer, which means all staff can have up to 16 free counselling sessions.

The groundworks and civil engineering company, which operates from Birmingham, in the West Midlands, and Derby, in the East Midlands, is based on strong values of sustainability, collaboration and Integrity. Its concern for wellbeing has extended to those it employs. This year, M Lambe has begun a process that will result in at least 10% of its workforce being made up of people who are at risk of homelessness. It has invested £32,000 in the scheme, which is run in collaboration with the Standing Tall Platinum programme.

Its client base includes large house building companies and it undertakes contracts that range from £500,000 projects to £30m ones, focusing on the residential and large-scale infrastructure sectors.

The company says: "We have no desire to be the biggest, but we will be the best."
