Submitted: 6 February, 2014
All our employees are eligible to take part in our health and wellbeing initiatives regardless of their age. We provide a number of work programmes for young people such as our Graduate and Summer Internship programme and have implemented the Smart Futures programme which is a paid work placement available to year 12 students. This programme is aimed at students from some of the UK’s most underprivileged areas and during 2014 we plan to increase the number of placements available and expand to more locations. We are committed to ensuring that healthy lifestyle messages are provided specifically to our young employees and continue to explore ways of encouraging our young people to adopt healthy habits that will last a life time.
Many of our young employees are members of the sports clubs for which EY provide funding. We are working with these clubs to promote their profile and membership as well as facilitating a number of additional sporting events.
