Mental health charity Mind has recognised RHP Group's commitment to workplace wellbeing with a Gold Award.
RHP was one of 119 organisations to take part in Mind’s sixth annual Workplace Wellbeing Index: a benchmark of best policy and practice, celebrating the good work employers are doing to promote and support positive mental health, and providing recommendations on areas where there's room to improve.
Gold is the highest accreditation, meaning we've successfully embedded mental health into policies and practices and demonstrated a long-term, in-depth commitment to employee mental health. RHP ranked 13th overall and came in the top ten organisations in the UK based on employee feedback alone.
David Done, RHP’s Chief Executive, comments: “We’re delighted to have achieved Gold status, especially in our first year of entering the Index. This is a reflection of the importance we place on providing a supportive workplace, where people feel comfortable talking about mental health and have a range of tools on offer that are easy to access when they need them. We know there is always more work to do, and we’ll be using the insight from the Index to continuously improve our work in this area”.
Emma Mamo, Head of Workplace Wellbeing at Mind, said:
“Over the last year, Covid-19 has continued to affect our lives and in particular the way we work, and it is reassuring that, in its sixth year, the Workplace Wellbeing Index continues to be the foremost benchmark of best policy and practice for supporting mental health at work.”
We were recognised for embedding a positive wellbeing culture through support and initiatives such as: investing in Mind Matters Champions (Mental Health First Aiders), making conversations about mental health the norm through weekly ‘Wellbeing Wednesday’ discussions, a monthly wellbeing allowance that people can personalise to their own needs, regular online meditation sessions and walk and talks, and integrating wellbeing and mental health education throughout our learning and development programme.
