We are firmly committed to supporting our staff as much as possible and recognise that helping people to achieve a healthy work-life balance is important in retaining high quality and committed staff and improving health and wellbeing amongst the workforce.
Our definition of work-life balance is: “St Anne’s aims to provide staff with the opportunity to balance the demands of work and personal life, to achieve fulfilment and well-being, whilst meeting the needs of the service”.
We have put this into practice in many ways through our Work-Life Balance strategy and some of the key benefits offered to staff in achievement of this aim are as follows:
- 24/7 Employee Assistance Programme.
- Stress risk assessments in place at each work-site.
- Subsidised gym membership.
- Flexible Working Policy
- Enhanced maternity leave benefits.
- 1.07 Dignity at work policy
We are continuously reviewing and updating our work-life balance action plans and strive to provide a positive and supportive work environments across all our work-sites.
