Volt achieves Silver at Mind’s Workplace Wellbeing Awards
Volt has been recognised at an awards ceremony for its commitment to workplace wellbeing. Volt was one of 103 organisations to take part in Mind’s annual Workplace Wellbeing Index, and was recognised with a Silver Award, meaning they are committed to achieving change within their workplace.
Mind’s Workplace Wellbeing Index is a benchmark of best policy and practice, celebrating the good work employers are doing to promote and support positive mental health, and providing key recommendations on the specific areas where there is room to improve.
The event was due to take place at The Ham Yard Hotel in Central London and be by hosted by TV Personality and Mind Ambassador, Theo Pathitis. Unfortunately, due to current events this is currently being revised.
Every employer depends on having healthy and productive employees – valued and supported staff are far more likely to perform better and achieve peak performance. Mental health problems are common among employees. Mind surveyed more than 54,0000 employees across the 103 employers participating in the Awards and found that 7 in 10 had experienced a mental health problem in their lives, with over half (53 per cent) affected by poor mental health in their current workplace.
Ben Batten, SVP & MD at Volt International said:
“We are delighted to have won Silver at the Workplace Wellbeing Awards. This is a testament to Volt's commitment to the wellbeing of our people, celebrating the positive work of our teams and support towards mental health. Well done to all the Volt team”.
Emma Mamo, Head of Workplace Wellbeing at Mind, said:
“Every employer depends on having a healthy and productive workforce – valued and supported employees are far more likely to deliver the best outcomes for your organisation. That’s why we’re delighted to recognise and celebrate employers making mental health a priority for their organisation through our Workplace Wellbeing Awards.
“This year, we’ve been overwhelmed to see so much good practice right across the board, from each and every one of the 103 diverse employers to take part. The Awards event provided an opportunity to recognise those forward-thinking employers who are at the cutting edge when it comes to investing in their staff wellbeing, and in turn getting the best outcomes for their business.”
