Carbon Neutral waste management business, B&M Waste Services, launched their B&M Wellbeing scheme in 2017 and since then has seen dramatic improvements in terms of staff health, wellbeing and both customer and staff retention levels.
As a family run business who have always prioritised the wellbeing of their staff, formalising this in terms of a scheme available to all staff, has been a perfect fit with this culture.
Offering a plethora of opportunities for staff to find out more, be involved and work together to further promote a happy and healthy team includes:
The measure of the wellbeing of the company being assessed and charted each month as part of the HSE Board Report linked to absence levels, staff turnover & employee survey.
Adding to their already impressive staff and customer retention levels, the first team to take part in the 8 week mindfulness course (which all interested staff will have completed by March 2019) saw some pretty impressive results:
None quantifiable but still very real…
Mick Ashall, Director for B&M Waste Services commented; “It’s fantastic to formalise the already fantastically caring culture we have into a scheme which allows our teams to openly suggest and participate in activities to improve their wellbeing. In today’s fast paced, technically driven culture it’s good to help staff remember how much our Cave Man ancestry plays in our day-to-day reactions and anxieties and to help staff build up their individual resilience to the everyday pressures of life.
B&M Waste hope other companies, particularly in the waste industry, follow suit, given the clear benefits of offering a scheme such as B&M Wellbeing.
