FGH Security has been recognised at Mind’s Workplace Wellbeing Awards for its commitment to employee and occupational wellbeing.
FGH Security is one of 106 organisations to take part in Mind’s third annual Workplace Wellbeing Index and has been recognised with a Silver award. This award acknowledges that our approach to employee welfare has an impact within the workplace. Mind’s Workplace Wellbeing Index is a benchmark of best policy and practice, celebrating the good work employers are doing to promote and support positive mental health.
We depend on healthy and productive team members and do our utmost to value and support our frontline team so they can realise their talents when needed. Mental health problems are common in the security industry, as they are across all sectors. Mind surveyed more than 44,000 employees across the 106 participating employers and found that 7 in 10 employees had experienced a mental health problem in their lifetime.
This Silver Award recognises our hard work in promoting workplace engagement and morale within the frontline team. The survey results benefit FGH by finding out where we are doing well and where we could improve our approach to mental health in the workplace.
Lyndsay Holt, our HR Manager said, “We’ve had such a busy year so far and despite the long hours, inclement weather and additional requirements, the morale amongst the team is inspiring. The team have worked together, supported each other and I have been humbled by the way everyone continues to look after our team with praise for each other. This is a great time for us to reflect on what we have achieved and how much more we can accomplish. We’ve received so much fantastic feedback from clients and members of the public and I’m so proud to be part of such a positive, supportive team who truly believe in giving something back. The survey results have helped us to identify in which ways we are supporting our team’s wellbeing and how we can do more. Thank you to everyone who completed our Mind Wellbeing Survey and for all your hard work.”
Emma Mamo, Head of Workplace Wellbeing at Mind said, “ valued and supported employees are far more likely to deliver the best outcomes for your organisation. That’s why we’re delighted to recognise and celebrate employers making mental health a priority for their organisation through our Workplace Wellbeing Awards. This year, we’ve been overwhelmed to see so much good practice right across the board, from each and every one of the 106 diverse employers to take part. The awards event provide an opportunity to recognise those forward-thinking employers who are at the cutting edge when it comes to investing in their staff wellbeing, and in turn getting the best outcomes for their business.”
