World Mental Health Day
10th October 2019
Mental health is an important subject to Premier Medical, from our group of dedicated mental health champions and managers who understand how to provide support; we are committed to making it an important part of everyday life.
We have a great range of staff benefits that support employee health and wellbeing which are available to all members of staff, regardless of their position or seniority from optical and dental care through Simply Health, to free flu jabs and therapies such as reflexology.
We believe in the importance of work-life balance and can offer you extensive annual leave of up to 38 days per year (including bank holidays) and flexible working practices, which has proved most popular amongst our current staff. Staff services and support does not stop there, we are proud to be able to offer 24×7 counselling services through our health partner, Simply Health that will allow you to speak to somebody in your time of need.
Today we have launched our ‘Tea & Talk’ initiative through Time to Change, which is an informal mental health workshop aimed at challenging stigma and discrimination by getting people talking over tea and cakes/biscuits in the break room. Staff can reflect on their mental health in a safe space and talk openly with others about their own experiences. Staff wellbeing is most certainly at the forefront of the Premier Medical culture.
