Mason Advisory, independent IT consultancy, has been recognised by Great Place to Work® as a centre of Excellence in Wellbeing. The new UK-wide award recognises organisations with excellent wellbeing practices.
The accreditation tracks six key areas that drive a culture of wellbeing including, work environment mental and physical health, financial security, interpersonal relationships, work-life balance, and fulfillment at work.
Mason Advisory is continually investing and implementing improvements in all these areas to build a culture of wellbeing. This has optimised employee experience and ensures that engagement and productivity are sustainable in the long run. It has introduced a new scheme to enable staff to buy back five days extra holidays per year, and offers extra days off for time served. It has initiated flexible working and an enhanced benefits package including a cycle scheme, childcare vouchers, and additional bonuses.
Steve Watmough, Mason Advisory CEO, says: “In the last 12 months we have implemented new strategies and activities to support the wellbeing of our employees. Looking after our team’s wellbeing means making their lives as stress-free as possible so they can concentrate on the job in hand, helping them to lead healthier, happier lifestyles.
We’re proud to have received this recognition as wellbeing is a key element of our business culture. It tells our current and future employees that we are committed to creating the best environment we can for individuals to thrive and for our business to operate efficiently. We feel we have created an atmosphere where teammates can talk to people around them, where they are supported, and where everyone is comfortable expressing themselves.
“We’re in a period of growth with new projects and clients coming on board and we understand the pressures this can put on our team, so as a company we are continuing to listen to them and ensure their wellbeing is at the forefront”.
