Jersey Electricity hosted two taster sessions with employees, presented by Align (formally known as Lido Wellness Centre). The sessions were aimed at highlighting triggers of stress and how to identify them in ourselves and others, offering some useful tips on how to combat unwanted effects and potential physical implications.
Marie-Christine and Amanda were both very informative and displayed a high level of knowledge and experience in their field to answer very diverse questions coming from those in attendance. As a result, many employees are now registered to undergo regular treatment for a variety of issues, each having been identified thanks to the information provided at the short seminars.
Our employees’ health and safety is very important to us at Jersey Electricity, so this type of initiative is always well-received and is a good opportunity for us to ensure our teams feel taken care of and valued for what they do, whichever side of the business they are in. Feedback on these events was very good and, as above, has led to individuals taking action to deal with issues which, in some cases, have gone untreated for several years due to a lack of knowledge about causes and symptoms.
As Employee Wellness initiatives become a larger part of the employment offering at Jersey Electricity, we will continue to look at ways to partner with Align to help deliver continuous improvement in overall health and wellbeing.
