A.E. Rodda & Son Ltd

A brief summary of why we became a healthy workplace

The health and wellbeing of our employees at Roddas is fundamental to the achievement of our company’s current goals and future ambitions. Having healthy, stress-free and well motivated employees results in better staff retention rates, lower levels of sickness and higher levels of performance

Our practices now speak for themselves with sickness absenteeism below 1% which is well below the average for our industry (currently 2.7%)

Recent health and well being activities

2014 has been a great year for Rodda's for our health and wellbeing initiatives. A group of staff formed the "Rodda's Ramblers" who took on the mammoth task of walking 100km

We have also formed an employee forum where health and wellbeing is at the heart of our discussions.


Plans/aims for the next year

We have huge plans for the next 12 months for health and wellbeing. At Rodda's we are very lucky to have wonderful open spaces to  make use of and in 2015 we intend to develop the area around our reed beds for walking activities and outdoor activities for staff.

Our Rodda's Ramblers are also planning to do the 3 peak challenge in July 2015 aiming to climb Ben Nevis,  Scaffel Pike and Snowdon.

Roddas are also one of only 49 companies within the UK to sign up to the alcohol pledge for the Public Health Responsibility which goes live on the 21st January 2015

You are what you eat

Employees who have a healthy approach to nutrition are more satisified in their job and are less likely to suffer from stress. (Occupational Health, Dec 2013 - Full article available).

Surrounding Influence

Having plants in and around the office can reduce employee annual sickness absence by as much as 23%, research by the Hortiucultural Trades Association has argued.  The research, in conjunction with the University of Reading, found that green space and planted areas can help to deliver substantial social and environmental benefits for organisations
