Legal & General has continued the momentum with its Health and wellbeing strategy
We ran a 'Know your numbers' campaign across all location offering employees the opportunity to see a nurse for blood pressure and cholesterol checks
We continue to support the Time to Change campaign in England and Wales to raise awareness of the stigma associated with mental health and hosted an event in Cardiff in November 2014 called 'It is Time to Change the culture around mental health in the workplace' inviting local companies and businesses to share experiences and best practice.
We continued to run campaigns at our various offices to increase awareness such as 'lets have a conversation'.
Legal & General is both a commissioner and user of talking therapies, for example, which can help employees to work out how to deal with negative thoughts and feelings and make positive changes, whether they are feeling distressed by difficult events in their lives or dealing with a diagnosed mental health problem.
We completed BITC Workwell programme for the third year which will give us valuable insight into areas of improvement and we remain in the upper quartile of top performing companies.
Legal & General launched the StepJockey initiative in September 2014, becoming the first major financial services company to physically label its stairs for ‘calorie burn’. As part of their wellbeing programme they launched their first stair climbing challenge in February in Coleman Street, London.
Nigel Wilson, Chief executive said: ‘This is a disarmingly simple but powerful initiative that encourages exercise as well as reducing carbon emissions. We strive to be one of Britain’s healthiest companies and with the launch of this initiative our buildings have now become the healthiest!’
