Employee Feedback

"Within 6 months of signing up the enthusiasm and potential of how we can promote Health and Wellbeing throughout the College has taken hold and now after receiving our Bronze, 2014 is looking to be a very exciting year.  The Award programme has enabled us to look into what our staff would like to access and benefit from in the future and ultimately will help towards maintaining a happy, healthy and motivated workforce"- Rebecca Smith, Truro and Penwith College
