Everton has been awarded the Workplace Wellbeing Charter Award demonstrating the Club’s commitment to its staff. 

The Workplace Wellbeing Charter is a voluntary, self-assessment scheme open to all public, private and voluntary sector organisations of any size based in UK.

To win accreditation, in a robust assessment, Everton had to satisfy auditors in the eight topic areas of the Charter, which include leadership, health and safety, mental health and physical activity.

The award of the Workplace Wellbeing Charter is clear recognition of the positive way in which the Club supports its workforce as well as the commitment to the health and wellbeing of its staff.

The award follows on from Everton being named in The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies list earlier this year and demonstrates the Club is an employer of choice that is working to a set of locally and nationally agreed standards 

Kim Healey, People Director at Everton 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.”

Matt Liggins, Director of Wellbeing for Health@Work said: “We have thoroughly enjoyed working with Everton to gain accreditation through the Workplace Wellbeing Charter. The club already has a number of forward thinking initiatives and policies in place to help staff maintain a healthy and balanced life within the working environment. As external assessors, we got a real sense that Everton Football Club strive to create a happy team who work well together.”

With over 1,000 organisations across UK holding the charter, the award is now widely recognised as the business standard for health, safety and wellbeing.
