Cavendish Communications based in Newhaven, has been commended for demonstrating its commitment to the health and wellbeing of its employees by receiving a Simplyhealth Healthy Workplace award.

Provided by healthcare provider Simplyhealth, the Healthy Workplace awards recognise the contribution that UK organisations, in both the private and public sector, make to the welfare of employees. Winners of the award provide employees with a range of initiatives and benefits that help to keep their workforce motivated and healthy.

Carmela Reid spokesperson for Cavendish Communications, comments: “We take great pride in ensuring that all 42 of our employees have access to a range of initiatives which help them to stay fit and well.”

“We actively encourage a healthy work life balance, offer free eye tests for VDU users and undertake regular work place risk assessments.

“In addition, our employees can take advantage of the health cash plan we have in place, which helps them to cover the cost of their everyday healthcare needs, such as visits to the dentist and the optician, up to an annual limit.”

James Glover from Simplyhealth remarks: “We run this award scheme because we want to recognise and encourage companies to care about the health of their people. We believe that companies can make a positive contribution to the health of our nation. Congratulations to Cavendish Communications on achieving Simplyhealth Healthy Workplace status and demonstrating that the health and wellbeing of its employees is fundamental.”
