Farrans shortlisted for Wellbeing in the Workplace Strategy Award
We are delighted to have secured a slot in the shortlist for this year’s Wellbeing in the Workplace Strategy Award -Large Business – at the Irish News Workplace and Employment Awards.
This award recognises businesses with healthy and happy staff. The winner will have an excellent approach to work-life balance, health and wellbeing practices. It will also have the support and policies in place to benefit their employees and get results.
The winning organisation will demonstrate how they have linked a healthy workforce, the impact of workplace support and policies, and employee welfare to improved performance within their business.
At Farrans, we know that our best asset is our people, this is why we continue to invest significantly in the wellbeing, physical and mental, of all our employees, across all locations of our business. We strive to be innovative and forward thinking in our approach to mental health in the construction sector.
Several years ago, we found a gap in support for our employees. The routine of travel, and the move from project to project, new locations, with new people can sometimes be challenging and isolating. We took this opportunity to speak to our people and feedback from managers offered us a better understanding of the openness to conversations around mental health.
With the feedback received, we now have a dedicated Mental Health Champion, Lisa Haycock, who spearheads our training programme and has created our Well Together Strategy.
Our fingers are crossed for the big awards night!
