Thank you Dawn

Date: 15 Apr 2014

At the 2014 Healthy Workplace Awards it was a privilege to thank my lovely colleague Dawn Hedger, HR Manager from A & E Rodda’s & Sons after retiring at the end of February 2014. Dawn has been a fantastic support to the Healthy Workplace programme and has worked with me on some fantastic ideas that came from Rodda’s and her team for example: 'The Mentor Award' and '2012 Cook Well, Be Well Challenge'. Dawn has been an inspiration to me personally and I have learned a lot from her. Dawn has presented to many other local companies across the county to inspire them to think more about the health and well-being of staff and also nationally and regionally for the British Heart Foundation. I would like to say a huge thank you to Dawn personally for all her hard work, support and dedication to the Healthy Workplace Programme and I wish Dawn all the very best in her retirement.

We will miss you lots.

Love Rachel

MIND

Mind, a Mental Health Charity, released a report in May 2011 claiming that UK businesses could save £8 billion per year if they managed workplace stress properly. 

The survey also found that 41% of workers experience stress, making it more of a concern than personal finances, health and relationships. 

Occupational Health

Where occupational health was provided, 39% of companies recorded a decline in short-term absence, whilst 28% experienced a reduction in long-term absence [CIPD 2008].
