Bridge is thrilled to announce that we have been awardedthe Excellence level in the London Healthy Workplace Charter Awards.
We are one of few businesses in London to be awarded Excellence Level and Bridge was the only business in the SME category that were awarded Excellence in 2016 at an event on the 15th November at the GLA in London.
The London Healthy Workplace Charter, backed by the Mayor of London, provides clear and easy steps for employers to make their workplaces healthier and happier.
Over 140 organisations have been accredited and awarded, with more than 260,000employees benefitting. The Healthy Workplace Charter is a set of standards that organisations meet in order to receive an official accreditation (and award).
Last year, Bridge was awarded the Achievement Level at the awards and our team worked hard to go for Excellence at this year’s event. This award is in recognition of the work Bridge has been doing for a number of years and more recently towards a healthier workplace in terms of employee’s health and wellbeing.
Alice Farquharson is our Health and Wellbeing Work Place Champion, who co-ordinates initiatives such as our FitBug challenge where staff measure the steps they take each week and are entered into a competition with a prize draw to see who is the healthiest staff member.
CEO Raymond Sheehy said: “All of us at Bridge Mental Health are thrilled to have been accredited the Excellence Level for the London Healthy Workplace Charter. We have strived to excel as a workplace of wellbeing by creating innovative initiatives that benefit all our employees, and we are pleased our work has been recognised. Out of 48 companies, Bridge was the only SME that won the excellence award and we feel this highlights our true commitment to the health and wellbeing of our staff.”
