We invest in wellbeing

In our first ever assessment Halsall have been awarded Gold for Investors in People’s ‘We invest in wellbeing’ accreditation. This award means that our organisation has the policies in place but, more than that, it means everyone from Managing Director to apprentice takes ownership for making the policies come to life. Only 16% of IIP accredited organisations achieve Gold and we are so proud to be a part of that 16%!

With the unprecedented times that we are currently living in have highlighted, more than ever before, the need for creating an environment that not only protects workers but promotes every facet of their wellbeing. Evidence shows that:

  • 1 in 4 UK employees have a physical health condition
  • Stress, depression and anxiety are behind 44% of all cases of work-related ill health
  • 140 million days are lost each year to sickness absence

A healthy workforce is not only an ethical priority for businesses but can also make a significant contribution through increased productivity and reduced costs associated with sickness absence.

  • 98.2% of employees surveyed, agreed, they have good working relationships across the organisation
  • 94.5% of employees surveyed, agreed, that Halsall is a Great Place to Work
  • 92.6% of employees surveyed, feel that they are supported by their line managers
  • 85.2% of employees surveyed, agreed, that they feel valued at work

2020 has been an exceptionally challenging year, following the pandemic we have maintained all of our sites and both offices while following government guidelines, we have continued to deliver vital builds, such as: schools, care homes and housing, we have continued to invest in our staff, we have rolled out our health and wellbeing strategy and our mental health ambassadors have commenced and we have promoted two Directors internally.

Significant work has been carried out on our Leadership development and refining management competencies though six Management Standards, and from a strategic perspective this has had a real impact on how leaders are perceived within the business and has helped managers to reflect on their leadership skills and how to manage in different ways. This has undoubtedly had a positive effect on morale.

We are incredibly proud of our people; we are building the future, not only with our projects but also with and for our people.
