BURTON Albion Community Trust have received accreditation from the Workplace Wellbeing Charter in recognition of its commitment to improve the health and welllbeing of its employees and volunteers.

The Workplace Wellbeing Charter is a voluntary accreditation standard managed by independent charity Health@Work Consultancy Services. It involves a self-assessment process as well as an on-site visit, where auditors conduct interviews and assess the organisation against eight topic areas. These include mental health, physical health, physical activity, absence management, health and safety and leadership.

The Workplace Wellbeing Charter is available for all public, private and voluntary sector organisations in the UK. To date, more than 1,000 are now accredited to the Workplace Wellbeing Charter – Find out more here.

Community Operations Manager, Lisa Beard, said: “Our workforce and their wellbeing is of paramount importance to us which is why receiving the Workplace Wellbeing Charter Award means so much to us as an organisation.

“This award is a celebration of the great work we already do and also a benchmark for the future as we continue to commit to the workplace environment we provide for all our staff and volunteers. We were pleased to welcome in the auditors who had the opportunity to talk with staff from across the Trust which gave them an opportunity to share the support on offer and reiterate how much Burton Albion Community Trust really care about the mental and physical wellbeing of all its people.”
