Softwire awarded Healthy Workplace Award!
7 November 2011, by Zoe Cunningham
Our first attempt was to buy in an unlimited supply of chocolate biscuits. This went well for a while but as the girth of our developers gradually increased we started to get asked for more healthy options, such as fruit and a cycle scheme so that everyone can burn off the calories from the chocolate biscuits.
This has become business as usual so we were really pleased and surprised to find that we had won the Simply Health Healthy Workplace Award for our efforts.
To quote from their site:
The Simplyhealth Healthy Workplace Awards have been established to recognise companies that demonstrate a positive approach towards the health and wellbeing of employees. Being a health conscious employer goes beyond tackling sickness absence and protecting the bottom line, it’s about showing a real commitment to people through improved engagement and a healthier, happier workforce.
Subash Sachania from Simply Health came to visit us and presented Operations Manager Zoe Cunningham (i.e. me) with our award.
