Supermarkets Aldi Stores and Lidl GB have been shortlisted in the category Best healthcare and wellbeing benefits at the Employee Benefits Awards 2023.
Sponsored by Vivup, this award was created to celebrate a successful health and wellbeing strategy that helps boost productivity or engagement through employee wellbeing.
The full category shortlist is:
- Aldi Stores
- Gerald Eve
- Herbert Smith Freehills
- Lidl GB
- World Duty Free Group (Dufry)
At last year’s ceremony, charity Blood Cancer UK scooped the award. This was due to its work ensuring wellbeing was a cross-cutting theme in its policies and procedures, performance management processes, organisational values, and in its work on equality, diversity and inclusion. It also worked on providing dedicated resources for staff and set up a wellbeing hub.
A Blood Cancer UK spokesperson said: “It’s really good to get recognition. We took wellbeing and integrated it into every area of our work was really crucial. We introduced additional flexibility, wellbeing days that staff can take for their mental health, and have had sessions in order to get the message of support out to our staff. We’ve had great feedback on this from our staff through our surveys.”
The Employee Benefits Awards, now in its 21st year, is the event of the year for the reward, benefits and HR industry, providing the opportunity to recognise and celebrate those driving excellence through their reward and benefits strategies.
The daytime event, which will be held at the Honourable Artillery Company, London on Friday 23 June, includes a drinks reception, three-course meal, entertainment and the chance to network with industry professionals. The after-party will feature live music, dodgems, a carousel and a big wheel in the venue’s private grounds.
