We’re excited to be sponsoring the Employee Health and Wellbeing Award at this year’s Excellence in Business Awards.
Russ Piper, chief executive at Sovereign, said: âWe are proud to sponsor this new award category, which recognises the concrete action Yorkshire businesses are taking to help safeguard their employeesâ health and wellbeing.
Whilst the last few years have brought an increasing understanding of the impact of mental and physical health problems on staff morale, retention and productivity, the pandemic has further heightened this, and prioritising employee health and wellbeing could not come at a more crucial time.
In turn, employees expect this care to be part of an employersâ culture, making this an important element of the race for talent. With our regionâs businesses now focused on how the economy can recover and return stronger than ever, supporting employee health and wellbeing is a critical component.â
