On March 17 A-one+ were invited to pick up their continuing excellence standard for the North East Better Health at Work award. This is our fifth consecutive year of participation, working our way through four levels from bronze to gold and we are now in our second year of continuing excellence which is a great achievement.
The Better Health at Work Award recognises and supports the efforts of employers in the North East and Cumbria in addressing health issues within the workplace.
Some of our awareness campaigns are:
- Sleep management (with a sleep consultant visiting all depots at start of shift)
- Dyslexia for adults
- Mental health
- Skin cancer awareness
- Back care
We also took part in the Global Corporate Challenge with 11 teams competing. Each year, for 100 days, employees around the world compete in teams to improve their physical and psychological health alongside friendly competition. Our focus was on the weight management, sleep and mindfulness elements of the challenge.
