Health & Wellbeing
Supporting our employee’s wellbeing
Our Health and Wellbeing Initiatives
In Version 1 we want our employees to be healthy and live well. We strive to promote a culture of positive health and wellbeing in Version 1. We invest in a strong culture of wellness through programs, activities and resources that help our employees create their own journey toward optimal wellbeing. Take a look at some of our initiatives below.
Our Wellbeing Framework
The overarching principle here at Version 1 is our Wellbeing framework which is based on the ‘Strength in Balance‘ theme. It encapsulates all aspects of a Version 1 employee’s health and wellbeing. Health and wellbeing are necessary to ‘Empower our People’ and ensure a sustainable career in Version 1!
The holistic nature of our Wellbeing model emphasises the importance of variety and balance and staying on top of your ‘A’ game by managing each aspect of yourself the best you can. This model highlights the importance of variety and balance. It shows how certain areas of an employee’s life may impact other areas if they are neglected. The 5 segments of the Wellbeing Wheel include Sense of Purpose, Financial Management, Physical Health, Mental Wellbeing and Social Connections. These are explained in more detail below.
The Five Segments of the Framework
Sense of PurposeThe realisation of your full potential through engaging in meaningful work, motivated by a desire to grow and develop and to reach goals and targets.
Financial ManagementThis segment deals with our employee's being financially healthy, stable, happy and free from stress or worry, based on the view of your financial situation.
Physical HealthPromoting proper care of our bodies for optimum health & functioning through balancing the areas of physical activity, nutrition, sleep and rest.
Mental WellbeingA state of well-being in which you realise your potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and contribute to the organisation.
Social ConnectionsThe quality of relationships at work including your sense of belonging and connection with your manager and peers within the organisation.
Healthy Place to Work Award
In January 2019, we received our very first certification as a ‘Healthy Place to Work‘. HPTW define a healthy organisation as an organisation that enables its employees to sustainably deliver on its objectives. They also define a healthy person as ‘an individual with the vitality to flourish at work and beyond’.
Excellence in Wellbeing Award
In 2018, as part of the Great Place to Work (GPTW) awards we received an award for Excellence in Wellbeing. Our employees completed a survey Comprising 17 statements, the survey seeks employees’ experiences and views on the six key dimensions that underpin the GPTW survey on wellbeing:
- Work environment
- Financial security
- Mental and physical health
- Inter-personal relationships
- Work-life balance
We were delighted to receive the certification in Excellence in Wellbeing based on our positive results reported from our employees!
