We are delighted to announce that our Wellbeing Programme has been shortlisted for the Employee Benefits Awards 2017, in the category “Best healthcare and wellbeing benefits – small employer”.
The Awards, in association with Aon Employee Benefits, are now in their 15th year and celebrate the best people, initiatives and benefit strategies from the last 12 months.
Our Wellbeing Programme was introduced to demonstrate to our employees just how much they are valued
The 2017 shortlist, decided by a panel of industry experts following a rigorous two-day judging process, formally recognised our Wellbeing Programme.
The Programme was introduced to invest more in our employees and demonstrate how much they are valued, and was launched to our 140-strong workforce as part of a company re-brand in November 2015.
Alongside partner wellbeing provider The Tonic, we implemented a well-rounded Programme that covered four key areas of wellbeing:
• Physical fitness
• Work-life balance
• Healthy behaviours
• Mental wellbeing
Each area of wellbeing was assigned to a different quarter of the year, and was accompanied with both one-to-one and group sessions focussing on personal development, tips and advice; available for free for all employees to take part in during normal working hours.
This core wellbeing programme was also supplemented with additional initiatives across the year, including improved internal communication and a Charity Walk.
The Wellbeing Programme has had a positive impact on tmgroup’s employees
The Wellbeing Programme has had a noticeable impact on employees, and tmgroup have seen a significant decrease in the number of days lost in the business due to anxiety, stress and depression between 2015 and 2016, as well as reduction in employee turnover.
Paul Albone, Managing Director at tmgroup, comments:
“It doesn’t matter how good your product is if it is not backed up by the people that create and support it. That’s why People are your most important asset in a business and investing time in them reaps rewards in a whole host of ways. We continually look at how we can enhance the overall benefits package at tm, and it is great that our Wellbeing Programme has been so well received.”
tmgroup’s Wellbeing Programme continues to thrive in 2017; with employees already having benefited from a series of informative seminars, including sessions on financial wellbeing, the juice diet, and healthy eating.
The winners of the Employee Benefits Awards will be announced at a ceremony in London on Friday 9th June 2017.
