Employee health and wellbeing 

If you’re fit, healthy and happy, it stands to reason that  you’re more likely to be productive at work. But the idea that employers have a role – perhaps even a duty – in this respect is a relatively new concept.

Employees talking

We firmly believe that it is as much in the Company’s interest as it is in the individual’s that each employee is fit and healthy 

We have provided health services for employees for several decades, starting at a time when it was considered a discretionary benefit, and was largely reactive in its approach. Over the years, we have expanded these services throughout the Company and become more proactive in supporting our employees’ health and wellbeing. We firmly believe that it is as much in the Company’s interest as it is in the individual’s that each employee is fit and healthy.

 

Occupational health and well-being
We contract with external occupational health professionals to monitor and safeguard the health of employees at work, and to provide information, advice and support to them on general health and wellness matters.

“It is about walking the walk and talking the talk when it comes to encouraging and maintaining healthy lifestyles,” says Coen Lommelaars, Vice President, Group Safety, describing the ‘Get the World Moving’ challenge our employees take part in.

In May 2013, Tate & Lyle signed up for the ‘Get the World Moving’ challenge. Get the World Moving (www.gettheworldmoving.com) is an international and intercompany competition to improve health through exercise. Participants measure his or her physical activity and get access to an online account to record daily progress. ‘This is a great way to encourage our employees to work together to embrace a healthy lifestyle,’ explains Simona Hryzakova, Director, HR, Eastern Europe and organiser of the challenge.

Coen believes health programmes like ‘Get the World Moving’ are vital for Tate & Lyle. “One of our areas of interest is health and nutrition – and we need to be actively involved and support active lifestyles in the communities where we live and work.”
