Wellbeing
Wellbeing
To promote the wellbeing of employees, office wellbeing awareness sessions are held, which all employees are invited to attend. Information is available to raise awareness on the link between sugar and obesity and diabetes. Refreshments of sugar-free and vegetable cakes are also widely provided. As a result of the wellbeing sessions a weekly lunchtime walking group called ‘Wednesday Walking’ has been set up. A monthly healthy recipe of seasonal food is emailed out to all staff. The company have also implemented a dedicated wellbeing page on the company intranet, which promotes the importance of regular exercise and healthy eating. Earlier this year Edenred implemented external mental health awareness training for all Managers, with strategies for reducing Managers’ own stress levels whilst supporting employees were also explored in the training. As part of the company’s benefits package, all employees are provided with a Ticket Restaurant card, a prepaid, reloadable card solution that employees can use in a huge range of restaurants, cafés, food outlets, supermarkets and grocery stores as well. Facilitating flexible working is very important to the organisation and they also recognise and look to promote internally. Edenred also have a discounted gym membership option available to all employees as part of their flexible benefits scheme.
My Team
My Team
Managers regularly attend and present at other team meetings to share and listen. This is all managed locally and significantly helps inter-department understanding and empathy. Every team in Edenred organises a team event each quarter with a budget of £30 per head. In 2016, teams have increasingly joined other teams for such events, which has further built inter-team spirit and engagement across all areas of the business. The company wide E.Recognition platform is used by a wide diverse range of employees to acknowledge other teams and individuals, with all achievements shared on a public billboard on the platform. The leader of the business also sends a personal monthly update to all employees to share key some business news and updates on projects and team developments. These updates and further news are shared on TV monitors located in both the London and Chester offices.
Giving Something Back

Each December Edenred celebrate ‘Eden for All’, a company initiative designed to mobilise employees’ support of local communities. Last December employees collected gifts for House on the Hill, giving their carers a much needed respite. As a company Edenred also supports Westminster Food Bank and help by donating food every month. To help contribute to the Food Bank, each month a different department organises food hamper collections. To date over 346 kilos of food has been donated by the employees of Edenred. Throughout the year, the company carries out fundraising events for its charity partner, Action for Children. Events organised have included dress down days, themed cake bakes and talent contests. For every employee involved in charitable fundraising activities, Edenred donate a set amount to the relevant charity. This year the company also worked with the ‘The Princes Trust’, a youth charity that helps young people aged 13 to 30 get into jobs, education and training. They were able to be involved in their ‘Get Into’ programme, which gives selected young people who are work-ready but do not have vocational skills the opportunity to develop the relevant skills to enable them to move into a sustainable job in a specific sector of work. With regards to employees, Edenred is committed to the principle of equal opportunity in employment, resulting in no job applicant or employee receiving less favourable treatment because of a protected characteristic like race, disability etc.
