This accreditation augments our IIP Platinum status and recognises the strong wellbeing strategy that we have in place, with flexible hybrid working, an enhanced healthcare package, virtual clubs and fitness classes, family-friendly policies and colleagues who understand and support each other's mental health needs.
Studies by Investors in People have shown that up to 40 productive days can be lost each year due to various factors, including worrying about one's finances and moderate to severe depression. Therefore, it is crucial that employers address this and commit to improving their people's wellbeing.
Paul Devoy, CEO of Investors in People, said: ‘We would like to congratulate Fife Housing Group on receiving their gold accreditation. We invest in wellbeing is a fantastic effort for any organisation. It places Fife Housing Group in good company with a host of organisations that understand the value of their people.’
Commenting on the award CEO, Nicki Donaldson, said: ‘At Fife Housing Group, we believe that our people are central to our success. If we can improve and invest in our colleagues' work life, everyone reaps the benefits. Wellbeing and mental health are incredibly important to us and we have a clear focus on continuing to develop what we offer colleagues in terms of support and activities in this area. We are delighted to have received our gold accreditation and will work towards achieving platinum next.’
A group of colleagues from across the organisation form our Wellbeing Working Group and we are committed to delivering even more wellbeing initiatives throughout 2023.
