Luxury hotel The Landmark London has received the London Healthy Workplace Award, after being recognised for its commitment to supporting the health and wellbeing of its 350 employees.
The hotel has been highly commended for its people strategy, before and during the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, after introducing a team of trained mental health first aiders to support its employees, alongside offering stress awareness training and alcohol awareness courses, and actively supporting employees with disabilities.
The London Healthy Workplace Award commends organisations that invest time and resources into supporting their employees through health and wellbeing strategies. This award sits alongside the Mayor’s Good Work Standard, which is designed to support fair employment practices and better workplaces.
To gain accreditation, organisations must excel in addressing recruitment, staff retention, and sickness absence, as well as employee productivity. They must also support physical wellbeing and mental health, encourage healthy lifestyle choices and make positive changes in workplace environments and attitudes.
So far, 260 organisations have been accredited and awarded the accolade. These include London South Bank University, Lloyds of London and London Fire Brigade.
Nicola Forshaw, director of HR at The Landmark London, said: “We are delighted to have been recognised for the London Healthy Workplace Award. We prioritise investing in our team’s wellbeing and mental health to support them in achieving a healthy lifestyle. It is an honour to be acknowledged for this.”
