At Hughes, we are extremely proud to be the first company in Northern Ireland to begin the ‘Healthy Place to Work’ certification process.
Over the last year, the world has been forced to embrace a new way of working throughout many different industries. As a result, many businesses, including our own, have shifted from office based working to remote home working.This brings new challenges when we consider the health and wellbeing of our people and as such it has become ever so apparent that this is where our resources and focus should be.
Sarah Balmforth, Head of Human Resources says, ‘Health and wellbeing deserve a strategic focus and one that ultimately had an impact on the bottom line. To this end, we want to partner with experts who could advise and guide us with the processes required to truly imbed a health and wellbeing strategy, and Healthy Place to Work provides us with that’.
We are dedicated to promoting a healthy workplace culture so that our staff feel supported and can bring their whole selves to work. We are also committed to assisting the 2021 economic recovery by continuing to provide stable and fulfilling employment for existing staff while also recruiting to expand our workforce.
