Mind Matters initiative a winner
Eastland Group’s approach to boosting mental health at work has been lauded after it received the Well-being Award at the Deloitte Energy Excellence Awards in Auckland.
The award recognised the company’s workplace initiative Mind Matters, which aims to increase staff’s mental wellbeing and resilience.
Accepting the award, Eastland Group people and performance general manager Jarred Moroney thanked the board, staff, and providers Lucia Kelleher, Annette Beautrais and Paul Loof.
“Safety is no longer a box ticking exercise or about compliance, it’s about people being enabled to be as good as they can. We are also having a positive impact in the region with the roll out of the Mates In Tairawhiti workplace suicide prevention programme.
Most importantly, thank you to our staff — they have truly embraced this work, are massively supportive of it and really care about each other.”
The other finalists in the category were Contact Energy and Meridian Energy.,
