CNWL wins award for staff health and wellbeing programmes
Friday 10 February 2017
CNWL has won accreditation from the London Healthy Workplace Charter.
The Charter - backed by the Mayor of London - awards employers for their steps to make their workplaces healthier and happier. The Trust had to meet a set of standards to achieve the accreditation on areas such as health and safety, mental health and physical activity. The three levels awarded are Comitment, Achievement or Excellence. CNWL has been accredited with the Achievement level.
Over 140 organisations have been accredited thus far and CNWL joins employers like the London Fire Brigade, Rolls Royce and the Royal College of Surgeons.
The Charter helps employers look at issues such as staff retention, sickness absence and employee productivity to make positive changes to workplace environment and attitudes.
Chief Executive of the Trust Claire Murdoch says: “The Charter is backed by London Mayor Sadiq Khan and is all about making workplaces healthier and happier. We applied, sent in our evidence and attended the verification day on Tuesday 7 February where evidence was examined and staff questioned. We were awarded Achievement: which is fantastic! We’re striving to reach the top award and the Charter team are supporting us to help us achieve this.”
