Headstrong UK wins health and wellbeing award

Headstrong UK has been commended for its commitment to employees’ health and wellbeing with a Simplyhealth Healthy Workplace award.

The IT consulting firm offers all of its 104 UK employees private medical insurance (PMI), group life assurance and dental care, as well as discounted local gym membership and a childcare voucher scheme. It also encourages employees to adopt a healthy lifestyle by promoting the importance of eating a balanced diet.

The Healthy Workplace awards recognise the contribution UK organisations make to the welfare of employees.

Amina Malik, HR business partner at Headstrong UK, said: “Because you spend the majority of your time at work, you need to have a healthy lifestyle at the same time.”

The firm also switched PMI and dental providers last year in order to get the best service for employees. Malik added: “It is nice to be recognised for the work that has been carried out, and to show we do look out for our employees [because] wellbeing is a priority for us.”
