"For us it’s providing a positive working environment for our people to excel, flourish, achieve their career goals but equally their goals in their non-working lives”
With the health and wellbeing of their people an integral aspect of TB+A’s values and ethos, they sought to further embed a culture which encouraged a healthy, motivated workforce, increased productivity, improved employee engagement and a desire to present a positive business profile. Guided by the health and wellbeing framework, they drafted a set of goals, consulted staff extensively, used the feedback to shape a health and wellbeing strategy and developed tools and policies. Several key principles were agreed:
To ensure there was a clear and consistent understanding of health and wellbeing across the business
That the health and wellbeing plan should be based on the organisation’s needs and is supported by appropriate and well communicated policies
That work-life balance policies must be fit-forpurpose
Using the Investors in People Health and Wellbeing Good Practice Guide, management at TB+A developed leadership strategies to promote a sense of ownership and responsibility by encouraging people to be involved in decision making.
"Our people are our most important asset, so the health and wellbeing of our staff is fundamental to what we want to achieve”
