Greencore Prepared Meals is the first business in Rotherham to achieve the Workplace Wellbeing Charter, a national standard that demonstrates employers’ commitment to workplace health and wellbeing.

Tim O’Connell, Head of Business, Retail and Investment at the Council presented the award at a launch event for the Workplace Wellbeing Charter at the AMP Technology Centre on Thursday 9 July 2015.

Following an independent audit and a series of interviews with members of staff at the site, Kiveton-based Greencore achieved the Excellence Award, which recognises the fully engaged leadership and the range of programmes and support mechanisms it has in place to support the health and wellbeing of its employees.

The Workplace Wellbeing Charter is a national award that provides employers with an easy and clear guide on how to make workplaces a supportive and productive environment in which employees can flourish.

The Council’s Public Health team is delivering the Charter in Rotherham and providing advice and support for local companies to improve health and wellbeing in their organisation.

The Workplace Wellbeing Charter is suitable for all businesses regardless of size. It is a simple process which involves assessing progress against a set of standards in the workplace.

Commenting on this award Julia Matthews, Senior Human Resources Business Partner at Greencore, said, “I am absolutely thrilled that Greencore has been recognised for its ongoing commitment to the health and wellbeing of its people.

“We are an organisation that puts its people at the core of what we do and it’s important that we keep our workforce healthy and safe. The feedback from the auditing process is very pleasing and it strengthens our commitment to do even better in the future.”
