Company ethos or mission statement:

THE HIGHEST STANDARDS ALWAYS: We have rigorous internal procedures that ensure our sites operate to the highest industry standards.

GROWING RESPONSIBLY – A KEY INGREDIENT FOR FUTURE GROWTH:

We are committed to growing with the minimum amount of impact on the environment.

OUR PEOPLE: We strongly believe that our people are our key asset and ensuring their safety and wellbeing is paramount.

CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY: We are committed to doing everything possible to make a positive contribution and 'grow responsibly'.

COMMUNITY: Our community credentials are important – which is why we have chosen to support various charities.

A brief summary of why you have become a healthy workplace:

Due to the current economic climate we are unable to give people tangible benefits. With being a healthy workplace we are able to offer our staff benefits that aren’t of a monetary value but makes work more enjoyable and a nicer place to be. We recognise that providing these kind of benefits and schemes have a positive impact on the workplace including increased levels of engagement leading to increased productivity, lower absence levels, innovation and being an employer of choice.

Recent Health & Wellbeing activities on offer (this year):

We have had a number of events in the last 12 months including:

  • Alcohol Awareness Day in our staff canteen

  • Family Fun Day where over 200 of our staff  
  • attended- free food/entertainment and activities
  • were available to all staff and their families
  • Wear it Pink- not only did we wear it pink but we also
  • baked cakes to sell

Plans/ Aims for next year:

This year we have one awareness day in every month where organised activities will take place such as ‘Free Health MOT’s for all Staff’ for Healthy Heart Month. There will also be a number of other planned activities for charities that will be based around sports and exercise. We plan to organise litter picks around our local area using them as team building exercises as well as give back to the local community. We are involved in a scheme which actively helps local young unemployed people to get into work and gain work experience. Healthy options in the canteen are becoming more and more popular so work will be done to increase the choices available for staff.

 

With over 750 employees on site, the Health and wellbeing of the team is an essential consideration in our daily activities. The dogged determination of our HR Officer and team to not only promote the health and wellbeing of our workforce but also to create a culture of an overall healthier workplace has been lost on none of us at Tulip Bodmin. The schemes and accessibility to support for all employees as well advertised and used, sickness and absence rates are heading in a sustainably positive direction and the overall raising in the awareness of one’s own health can be measured in the way that health issues no longer dramatically affect the staff’s ability to remain in or at work. We are actively engaged in local community projects as well as with public sector organisations who have helped lead by example for healthy practices at work. Overall I have personally moved from cynic to massive supporter of the scheme, which if managed well, has a large and demonstrable positive effect on the workforce

Top tip! No hiding from work email for employees

Companies need to set clear policies on acceptable use of work email, as well as regarding when to switch off - employees need to know it is OK to let work email that arrived after hours wait until the morning.

Smoking

Those who smoke six cigarettes a day or more have a 34% higher incidence of being absent than non-smokers and a 10% higher incidence of being absent for longer.
