Everton Football Club (FC) has received accreditation from the Workplace Wellbeing Charter in recognition of its commitment to improve the health and wellbeing of its 480 permanent employees.
Everton FC (pictured) achieved this in June 2018.
The Workplace Wellbeing Charter is a voluntary accreditation standard managed by independent charity Health@Work Consultancy Services. It involves a self-assessment process as well as an on-site visit, where auditors conduct interviews and assess the organisation against eight topic areas. These include mental health, physical activity, absence management, health and safety and leadership.
The Workplace Wellbeing Charter is available for all public, private and voluntary sector organisations in the UK. To date, more than 1,000 are now accredited to the Workplace Wellbeing Charter.
Kim Healey, people director at Everton FC, said: “This Workplace Wellbeing Charter award is very important to us. It’s a sign of our continued commitment to the environment we provide to everyone working at Everton. To achieve this award, auditors have spoken to Club staff at all levels who, in their own words, were able to get across how they are supported in their roles and how the Club cares about their mental and physical wellbeing.”
