Anglian Water takes the health and safety of its 5,000 staff seriously. The wellbeing of employees – not only onsite technicians, but those in offices and depots too – is part of a holistic approach to ensuring that everybody’s physical, mental, social and financial health is the best it can be.
“Our ability to perform as a business is linked entirely to the performance of the people within it. We have a fundamental belief that looking after our people is the right thing to do, but also from a business point of view if our colleagues are fit, well and safe they are likely to be more productive and deliver a better service to our customers.”
Peter Simpson, CEO, Anglian Water
The water and wastewater company’s Wellbeing Strategy is based on research commissioned to determine what employees thought were key issues affecting their health and wellbeing at work. More than 100 phone calls were made to employees and an online survey was carried out with an 80% response rate.
