What is the Workplace Wellbeing Charter?
The Workplace Wellbeing Charter is run by independent national charity Health@Work whose mission is to seamlessly embed workplace wellbeing into every aspect of an organisation. It is a voluntary, self-assessment scheme open to all public, private and voluntary sector organisations of any size based in the UK. With more than 1,000 organisations across UK holding the charter, the award is now widely recognised as the business standard for health, safety and wellbeing.
Why did we want to receive the Workplace Wellbeing Charter?
We wanted to show our commitment to our colleagues in ensuring their health and wellbeing is important to us. We won the accreditation following a robust assessment. We had to satisfy auditors in the eight topic areas of the Charter, which include leadership, health and safety, mental health and physical activity. A number of colleagues across the Everton Family were also interviewed as part of this, with colleagues stating how much they enjoyed working for the Club, feel appreciated by the Club, the atmosphere, people and ethos.
We are committed to improving the lives of our colleagues and ensuring we improve their health and wellbeing. We have worked with the Workplace Wellbeing Charter to create a bespoke programme of support that is best suited to the Everton Family and our colleagues needs.
