Instarmac | Instarmac achieves Great Place to Work® Excellence in Wellbeing award
Instarmac Group plc, a leading UK manufacturer based in Tamworth, Staffordshire, are delighted to have been presented with the Great Place to Work® Excellence in Wellbeing award.
Great Place to Work®, in partnership with the Guardian and Sunday Telegraph, is recognised worldwide and celebrates trust and engagement within an organisation. The Excellence in Wellbeing award is only given to companies who are committed to creating a happier and healthier work environment – values Instarmac have always prided themselves on.
Great Place to Work® describes wellbeing as “a complex blend of the physical, psychological, social and financial aspects of people’s working lives. When optimised, these dimensions provide a sustainable platform for all employees to flourish both in and out of the workplace.”
In Autumn 2018, every Instarmac employee was given the opportunity to complete the Great Place to Work Trust Index® Survey – a questionnaire that seeks employees experiences and views on six dimensions that underpin wellbeing, as well as other topics including Strategy, Direction, Values, Recognition, Reward and Career Development.
To measure the levels of wellbeing in an organisation, all employees were asked questions about their work environment, financial security, mental and physical health, inter-personal relationships, work-life balance and fulfilment. These responses were then analysed to determine whether or not a company really is committed to their employees wellbeing.
On winning the Excellence in Wellbeing award, Instarmac’s Managing Director, John Holcroft, commented: “Wellbeing has always been important to everyone at Instarmac. We believe wellbeing goes further than just being happy. It’s about being able to cope when things get tough in our lives or when our health suffers. We provide a range of benefits to support staff wellbeing such as private medical and dental care, three holiday homes which can be used by staff all year round free of charge, the Employee Benefit Trust to support employees through difficult times, as well as the many initiatives we carry out throughout the year.”
He went on to say, “I am thrilled that Instarmac has been presented with this prestigious award as it shows our employees, and future colleagues, that we are committed to creating the best work environment possible.”
The Great Place to Work® awards take place in May 2019 and Instarmac are delighted to be attending.
