In 2013 Cadwyn set up a Health and Wellbeing group. The aim of the group is to support employees to improve their overall health and wellbeing. The wellbeing areas they are looking at are Smoking, Mental Health, Alcohol and Substance Misuse, Nutrition, Musculoskeletal Disorders, Physical Activity. Examples of what the group has facilitated over the last year to help their employees improve their health and wellbeing include: employees who want to stop smoking by paying for hypnotherapy sessions, holding cessation classes in work time, having a smoke free environment, provide information on local facilities and events that can help improve/maintain their physical activity, walking events, 3 peaks, providing bikes to travel to business appointments /travel to and from work etc. We pay for employees to attend counselling sessions during work time to help with work and personal related problems. Employees have used this when they have family or relationship breakdowns as although their performance is not affected they want to support them through difficult times. Cadwyn have held back/head massages on site for employees in work time to help improve Musculoskeletal Disorders and psychological wellbeing. To enhance wellbeing they try and accommodate individual’s needs rather than a one size fits all policy i.e. work compressed hours to accommodate their domestic needs, supported a career break for employees to personally develop her personal interests, supported employees to work from home when they have not been well enough to come into the office.
