Independent metering and utility network construction organisation Energy Assets has launched a health and wellbeing programme for its 802 UK employees.
The programme will provide mental and physical wellbeing support to help employees adapt to living through the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic.
Launching to coincide with Mental Health Awareness Week, Energy Assets wants to promote a good work-life balance for all of its employees and actively encourage them to speak about any worries or concerns they may have.
The EA Health programme offers a range of wellbeing support options, including access to mental health first aid experts, who are able to respond and listen to the concerns of employees.
Jen Faichey, head of human resources at Energy Assets, said: “We have been working on this initiative for many months but there has probably never been a more appropriate moment to introduce EA Health.”
“We are all going through a period of uncertainty during which staying connected, keeping active and being mindful of those around us is vitally important. The wellbeing framework we have developed aims to encourage our people to share any worries and concerns because we know that good health is a pre-requisite for a productive work-life balance.”
“By creating a shared understanding of why wellbeing is so important across our organisation, we aim to encourage a positive approach to mental and physical health founded on awareness and understanding, support and behaviours.”
