In an ever-changing world, it has never been more important to support employee mental health and wellbeing. Prioritizing wellbeing not only enhances our employees’ health and happiness, it makes good business sense, improving resilience, productivity and performance.
“With our strong track record on health and safety, we have a good basis on which to further enhance the wellbeing of our people, and I know the leadership team and Board are fully behind this,” says John Raine, Group HSEQ Director. “We’ve engaged with our workforce to understand what’s important and this has highlighted some areas of focus. It’s also been hugely encouraging to hear about all the wellbeing activity already underway across our business units globally.”
Keller's new global framework 'Our wellbeing foundations' will help the company build on these strong foundations and increase its' focus on all aspects of Keller people’s wellbeing; ensuring its' people are healthy and fulfilled – at work and at home, now and in the future.
Keller’s approach to wellbeing includes:
