The FSB Celebrating Small Business Awards seek to recognise and celebrate the contribution that smaller businesses and the self-employed make to the UK, from innovation and digital, to the environment and their local communities. This award recognises businesses that are creating an environment for their employees to succeed by demonstrating their commitment to the health and wellbeing of their workforce.
Having launched our Health and Wellbeing Strategy at the start of 2019 to ensure that we continue to develop a healthy and motivated workforce, we’ve seen the initiatives put in place have a material impact on our staff at work.
We are proud of the results seen over the last year as behaviour change is challenging for any organisation, but the strategy and commitment to health and wellbeing is now embedded within the culture and vision of Explain and we continue to implement new initiatives every month aligned to the evolving needs of our workforce.
The North East winner will be revealed in March, with the successful organisation going through to the national final – we have our fingers crossed!
