Petroc is committed to providing a working environment that promotes the best health for all employees through:
- Embedding workable policies and procedures such as flexible working, family-friendly and special leave
- Increasing awareness and understanding of stress-related issues through training and health promotion. We are a Mindful employer, and have first aid staff trained in mental health support
- Provide access to confidential support services for all staff through our counselling provision
In addition, we have a Wellbeing and Mental Health Strategy and offer a variety of opportunities for staff to take care of their wellbeing through these five key themes:
- Connect with other people
- Be physically active
- Learn new skills
- Give to others
For all staff, wellbeing forms part of our CPD days, providing the opportunity to experience learning a new task or hobby, helping to recognise and manage stress and wellbeing as well as taking part in a variety of wellbeing clubs (from book club to running) set up by staff.
Our staff have the opportunity to take part in regular ‘pulse’ surveys so the leaders of the college can track and support wellbeing throughout the year.
