GibSams Launches Their Guide To Wellbeing At Work Podcast Series

Local charity GibSams has launched a series of podcasts for those considering developing a wellbeing scheme at their workplace. 

A statement from GibSams follows below:

Through interviews with past winners of its Wellbeing at Work Awards, listeners are guided  through some of the key steps involved in setting up a wellbeing scheme and receive  practical tips and advice.  

Speaking of the initiative, GibSams Founder Marie-Lou said, “Local companies have  enthusiastically embraced our Wellbeing in the Workplace Scheme, which we launched  three years ago, and all have seen the benefit to both the company and their employees. A  Wellbeing Strategy is different for every company, depending on its needs, and can be quite  simple to incorporate. These podcasts are designed to explain how companies can  implement a scheme in their workplace.” 

Local podcast producer David Revagliatte hosts the series, “I have loved every minute of this  project for GibSams. Everyone I interviewed had a unique approach to wellbeing in the  workplace, but what stood out was how much they all cared about their employees and  colleagues. I hope listeners enjoy the series and that it inspires them to make positive  changes at their place of work.”  

Insurance company Masbro is the proud sponsor of the 2022/23 GibSams Wellbeing in the  Workplace podcast series. James Andlaw, Managing Director at Masbro said, “GibSams not  only provide an invaluable service and support to our local community but here, in their  podcast series, promote the sharing of varied wellbeing practices at work to encourage  enhancements and improvements in those practices, that have not only a positive impact on  our wellbeing at work but an overall impact on the wellbeing of our local community, all of  which Masbro is proud to be a part of.” 

This podcast initiative is part of a broader move by GibSams to encourage employers to look  out for the health and wellbeing of their employees and reduce work-related stress. GibSams  launched its annual ‘Wellbeing at Work Awards’ scheme in September 2019 as part of its  ‘Suicide Prevention Awareness Month Worldwide’ programme. The scheme’s purpose is to  publicly recognise and reward companies, regardless of the size of their businesses, that  have successfully implemented positive changes for the benefit of their employees.
