About MWH


What is it like to work for MWH

Wellbeing
Wellbeing
The wellbeing of employees is at the forefront of the Company’s mind and it is in constant communication with employees. An Employee Assistance Programme is available for employees to help them through crises and without which their well-being could be compromised. The Employee Assistance Programme has well-being nurses and counsellors to assist with anxiety, stress and depression. They have introduced alcohol and drugs testing, not to be punitive, but to bring support to those that need it. Often when people are anxious, stressed or depressed they are more vulnerable and susceptible to addiction as a coping mechanism. The Company seeks to help and support those who are positive on a random test and not invoke the disciplinary procedure, but start a programme of support. They also have private medical, permanent health insurance cover and then an array of well-being items that can be purchased with disposable income through flexible benefits.

Giving Something Back

MWH’s chosen corporate charity is WaterAid which they chose to support as it is a charity which reflects their vision of Building a Better World through delivering clean water supplies. They have appointed a Steering Group and a network of WaterAid Reps within each MWH office. The steering group and reps organise a diverse range of employee fundraising events within their local offices throughout the year. Fundraising events include activities such as dress down days, cake and sweet sales. MWH also auctioned surplus office furniture with the proceeds being donated to WaterAid. We have an increasing number of individuals and teams who take part in WaterAid National events such as The Great North Run, 6 peaks and other sporting challenges. During 2012/13 they raised £15,660 for WaterAid.
