We closely monitor our performance across the colleague wellbeing agenda to ensure we are making an impact where it matters.
We report this data to our Board via our Corporate Responsibility Committee to ensure they have oversight and input.
Some key highlights from 2021-22 include:
We’re always looking for new ways to measure our work in this area and through 2022-23 we’ll be bringing in more figures around health assessments, mental health support and our social value impact to demonstrate the growing difference we’re making at Serco.
Benchmarking ourselves for best practice
We don’t believe in marking our own homework so have sought to measure ourselves against a host of industry recognised standards to demonstrate our commitment to your health & wellbeing and identify opportunities for us to go further.
Corporate Mental Health Benchmark
The CCLA corporate mental health benchmark measures us against the other top 100 companies based in the UK. We’re thrilled to be 1 of only 3 that are ranked in Tier 1.
The Mental Health at Work Commitment
The mental health at work commitment is based on the Farmer Stevenson Report and is considered best practice for workplace wellbeing. We are signed up to the commitment and audit ourselves against it annually.
Workplace Wellbeing Index 2021/22
To ensure our colleagues are fully involved in the wellbeing agenda we use the Mind Workplace Wellbeing Index to measure our impact against other organisations. We’re delighted to have achieved a silver award.
ISO 45003 is the accreditation for management of Psychosocial Risks in the workplace. We’re proud to be the first global organisation to achieve this standard.
