Summit Learning Trust in Birmingham and Solihull has been accredited with the nationally recognised Workplace Wellbeing Charter award, celebrating its commitment to the health and wellbeing all its employees.
The award, created by Health@Work, identifies organisations across the UK dedicated to championing wellbeing in the workplace, with Summit now successfully retaining listed status on the Workplace Wellbeing Charter register.
In a rigorous assessment, Summit was found to demonstrate a robust commitment to employee health and wellbeing by representatives from Health@Work, who received detailed evidence about the initiatives rolled out, and the engagement from senior stakeholders.
Summit provided considerable evidence of wellbeing developments throughout the process, ultimately leading to higher outcomes achieved on previous wellbeing pillars.
Anila Patel, HR Director at Summit Learning Trust, said:
“This national accreditation demonstrates the commitment of our Trust to providing a nurturing, happy and supportive workplace environment – so that everyone can thrive.
“Our Health and Wellbeing Steering Group and HR team have worked hard to put policies and interventions in place that support a culture of wellbeing at Summit Learning Trust. I am so grateful to see this being recognised at such a high level.”
