We take the health and wellbeing of our staff seriously and are constantly looking at ways in which we can improve the working lives of our staff to improve their work life balance and reduce stress levels.   Our commitment to staff health and wellbeing was recognised this year when we were award Gold status for the Medway Workplace Wellbeing Award.   Some of our current initiatives are:

  •  Health and wellbeing events for staff where they can receive information on staying healthy and get checks on blood pressure, blood glucose levels and help with weight management and smoking cessation.
  • Fast track referral service for staff suffering from back or musculoskeletal problems where they can be seen and assessed by a physiotherapist and given support.
  • Reduced membership cost to Medway Park, our local Leisure Centre and other sports facilities.
  • Ad hoc events, for example, a lunchtime taster session for staff to experience some holistic therapies to reduce stress, eg Indian head massage, reflexology, meditation techniques. 
  • Free flu vaccination
  • Staff counselling service
  • Free healthy eating and weight management programme
  • Free Pilates classes
  • Reduced cost podiatry service
