Kenny Waste Management is now partnered with We Are Wellbeing, a leading UK wellbeing provider. This new partnership will enable our managers to further support their teams, to build confidence and maintain good levels of health and wellbeing.
We Are Wellbeing’s mission is to support businesses in creating workplaces where people thrive. By building strategic partnerships, they offer businesses bespoke wellbeing services. We’ll be engaging their services across their four pillars, physical, mental, social, and financial.
We remain committed to providing a work environment with a strong culture that prioritises health and safety, both physical and mental. In the coming months, we’ll be working together to offer training, build our own wellbeing champions programme, and shape a more supportive work environment. By joining with We Are Wellbeing, we are also gaining access to a wealth of knowledge across topics that matter to all of us.
At the same time, two of our directors have recently completed their Mental Health First Aid training, bringing us to a total of five qualified Mental Health First Aiders. They serve as a first point of contact for our employees and form part of our approach to supporting our people.
The science is clear. Positive employee wellbeing is linked to a reduction in business costs associated with staff turnover, presenteeism, and sickness absences. As well as supporting our employees, our new partnership is an investment in the health of our business.
Andy Romero-Birkbeck, Founder and Director at We Are Wellbeing, told us:
“Stress is part of our day-to-day life. We can’t avoid it, but we can learn techniques to help us to manage common mental health problems such as stress, anxiety, and depression.
Employers that are looking to support their staff should encourage their team to engage in We Are Wellbeing services and use it to help maintain good levels of wellbeing.”
Our Sales Director, Karen Hampton, commented:
“Talking to someone can be the first step in helping yourself, dealing with those everyday stresses, and working towards a better quality of life.
Our people are at the heart of everything we do, so we want to take action to improve employee health and wellbeing. We are determined to provide the right kind of support that enables everyone to excel, both personally and professionally.”
We look forward to progressing in this new partnership. For further updates, keep tabs on our newsfeed.
