Our staff health and wellbeing programme #HealthyMe provides all First Community staff with the opportunity to engage in a number of health and wellbeing related activities. For example, we currently have a regular running club, choir and a walking group. We actively encourage staff to take their lunch breaks and not to schedule meetings over the lunch period. Staff also have access to an Employee Assistance Programme which provides confidential 24 hour support 7 days a week on a wide range of personal and work related difficulties.
#HealthyMe our on-going health and wellbeing programme was launched in September 2018 with a health and wellbeing month #StartsWithMe. During the month activities were arranged across all our sites to encourage staff to try something new and make a positive lasting change to their health and wellbeing. Survey feedback on health and wellbeing month showed that 75% of respondents had been inspired to make lasting changes to their health and wellbeing as a result of #StartsWithMe.
