What is it like to work for Global Aerospace Underwriting Managers Ltd

Wellbeing
Wellbeing
Earlier this year Global ran a series of lunchtime guided City walks, held on a monthly basis. Walks were led by qualified City of London Guides and incurred no cost for attendees. As well as providing an opportunity to explore the unusual and hidden features that the City of London has to offer, the walks provided healthy moderate exercise, an opportunity for members of the PMI scheme to earn additional points from increased daily activity and the chance to socialise with colleagues. The lunchtime beginner group, offered by the store emphasises on participation and not pace. Feedback was received from one employee that from being a non-runner, after 7 weeks' attendance, they successfully completed a 5km run in 30 minutes. The Company funds massage therapy appointments which are delivered in-house, twice a year and are available to all employees. The massage therapist uses a combination of massage and acupressure techniques to the back, neck, shoulders, arms, hands and scalp while the employee sits in a specially designed chair. Each massage lasts for 20 minutes and takes place during the working day. Benefits include easing tense and knotted muscles, improves mobility and flexibility, relieves anxiety and stress, induces relaxation and wellbeing and increases mental alertness and clarity. On a day-to day basis, they provide employees with the use of a large kitchen with break-out seating area to encourage individuals to take time away from their desks to eat lunch and integrate with their colleagues. For those requiring a more tranquil area, a First Aid room is available for private reflection.

Global Aerospace’s current community initiatives include employee volunteering, foodbank donations, a work experience programme, support to local charities through charitable donations and business mentoring. The recently launched Business Mentoring Scheme provides support to students in a local school who do not have a role model in work or may have difficulty relating to the world of work. Global Aerospace’s local borough, Tower Hamlets, is only a stone's throw away from the financial heart of London that houses the richest concentration of economic business in the world. TH is the UK's most deprived borough, with 39% of people living in poverty and 55% of pupils qualifying for free school meals. There are high levels of unemployment and crime, plus low educational attainment in children. A team of eight volunteers will mentor children over a school year, with the aim of nurturing talent and encouraging the young people. These activities benefit not just society but Global Aerospace too, as they provide an opportunity to learn and good practice to be shared and built on.
