The Britain’s Healthiest Workplace Survey, which is now in its fifth year, recognises and ranks organisations with the healthiest workforces, based on nine different risk factors, including smoking habits, nutrition and physical activity. Organisations are also scored on their workplace wellness interventions, facilities and services.
Within its category – large employer – the company is the ninth healthiest business to work for out of Britain’s top 60 and the 15th healthiest workplace.
One of the reasons why Aggregate Industries received this accolade is its ‘Healthy You’ employee initiative, which provides advice and guidance on how to deal with a variety of real health issues both in and out of the workplace.
Stephanie Kendrick, Healthy You Lead at Aggregate Industries, comments: “The overall health and wellbeing of our employees is a key priority for us and, in conjunction with the continuing focus on excellence in safety practices, plays a significant contribution in our journey to strive for zero harm to our people. We truly believe healthier people are safer people. To be recognised as one of the country’s healthiest workplaces is true testament to this commitment and the results we are seeing from our Healthy You programme.”
