London Healthy Workplace Charter Accreditation

19 August 2016. News.

Peldon Rose has always championed workplace health and wellbeing both in our own office as well as the new offices we deliver across London, so we are delighted to have been awarded the London Healthy Workplace Charter at commitment level.

The London Healthy Workplace Charter is a self-assessment framework that recognises and rewards employers for investing in workplace health and wellbeing. It provides a series of standards for workplaces that need to be met in order to guide them to creating a health-conscious workplace. Since the programme started, 87 organisations have gained the accreditation and over 195,000 employees are now benefitting from it.

We had some great feedback from the verifiers who were particularly impressed with a number of key areas in our business including:

  • Our informal and encouraging approach to communications with employees, such as our weekly all-hands meetings, business forums, workshops and CEO luncheons
  • Our supportive approach to employees, such as our rolling training & development programme, personal development plans and regular 1-2-1 manager meetings
  • Our work to raise awareness of mental health, such as our support of charity Mind this year to promote better mental wellbeing
  • Our encouragement of physical activity, such as our running club, body strength classes, cycling club, badminton club and our triathlon team

Our esteemed CEO, Jitesh Patel, says: “We are delighted to be one of the first 100 companies in London to achieve this excellent initiative as we have long championed workplace health and wellbeing through our own office and those we deliver across London. There is a direct link between employee wellbeing and attracting and retaining the very best talent. We are already talking with a number of our clients about also participating in London Healthy Workplace Charter to see how they can achieve similar success with their own workplace health and wellbeing.”
