CET has been praised for ‘setting an excellent example in achieving high workforce wellbeing’ after being named as recipients of the Investors in People (IiP) We Invest in Wellbeing silver accreditation award.
We Invest in Wellbeing is recognised in 66 countries and has supported more than 11 million people within 15,000 organisations, making it the global benchmark when it comes to wellbeing and mental health management within the workplace.
The assessment process looks to identify organisations that have the right principles in place to develop, promote and encourage a wellbeing strategy that is supported by its people. As part of this process, all CET employees were invited to complete a confidential questionnaire in the spring of 2021, before follow-up interviews established how the business met the standards as outlined in the questionnaire responses.
Upon completing the assessment process, IiP declared that CET is ‘a socially conscious organisation that understands the importance of keeping those who work for you and their families safe and healthy, while being morally obliged to set an excellent example in achieving high workforce wellbeing’.
Paul Devoy, CEO of Investors in People, said: “We would like to congratulate CET. Silver accreditation on We invest in Wellbeing is a fantastic effort for any organisation, and places CET in fine company with a host of organisations that understand the value of wellbeing.”
Jan Fairhurst, CET HR Manager, said: “We are delighted to receive this award as recognition for the hard work and passion that has driven our ambition in achieving We Invest in Wellbeing status. On behalf of CET, I would like to say a massive thank you to all of Our People, as we couldn’t have achieved this award without the participation and commitment they show on a daily basis.
“Although this award is a huge achievement, we have already started to look at ways in which we can make further improvements wherever possible to the wellbeing of our people and we are excited to implement new initiatives in the three key areas of physical, social and psychological.”
