Millwood Servicing Ltd has been recognised at an awards ceremony for its commitment to workplace wellbeing.
Millwood Servicing Ltd was one of 103 organisations to take part in Mind’s second annual Workplace Wellbeing Index, and was recognised with a Silver Award, meaning they are committed to achieving change within their workplace.
Mind’s Workplace Wellbeing Index is a benchmark of best policy and practice, celebrating the good work employers are doing to promote and support positive mental health, and providing key recommendations on the specific areas where there is room to improve.
The event was due to take place at The Ham Yard Hotel in Central London and be by hosted by TV Personality and Mind Ambassador, Theo Pathitis. Unfortunately, due to current events this is currently being revised. Further details to follow in due course.
Every employer depends on having healthy and productive employees – valued and supported staff are far more likely to perform better and achieve peak performance. Mental health problems are common among employees. Mind surveyed more than 44,000 employees across the 106 employers participating in the Awards and found that 7 in 10 had experienced a mental health problem in their lives, with over one in two (53 per cent) affected by poor mental health in their current workplace.
Here at Millwood we use all of our core four values (being open, having a balanced work:life ratio, being Fair and being Honest) to underpin all that we do and, creating and implementing a positive wellbeing culture is just one of the many strong elements that work on and achieve daily.
Our inclusive Open-door Policy ensures that our staff can talk to any member of staff – any Manager or Director and especially the CEO should they ever wish to do so and when ever they need to.
Matt Wood, CEO and Co-Owner at Millwood said:
“We are delighted and somewhat astounded to receive this truly amazing recognition from MIND, an award that holistically represents all that we strive for here at Millwood as without our staff we are truly nothing. Over the last 27 years of business we have changed many times, strived to be the best. Creating developing and maintaining a strong positive culture and mindful workplace is our No. 1 priority and with MINDs’ help we can achieve a lot more.”
Emma Mamo, Head of Workplace Wellbeing at Mind, said:
“Every employer depends on having a healthy and productive workforce – valued and supported employees are far more likely to deliver the best outcomes for your organisation. That’s why we’re delighted to recognise and celebrate employers making mental health a priority for their organisation through our Workplace Wellbeing Awards.
“This year, we’ve been overwhelmed to see so much good practice right across the board, from each and every one of the 106 diverse employers to take part. The Awards event provided an opportunity to recognise those forward-thinking employers who are at the cutting edge when it comes to investing in their staff wellbeing, and in turn getting the best outcomes for their business.”
