Burnetts offer a wide range of HR initiatives including Mental Health First Aiders, various clubs and a team budget to spend on social activities.
COVID-19 has provided opportunity for us to reflect on what is important, with many employees telling us how much they miss colleagues outside their own team.
We listened and are launching WorkVivo, our new work based social media platform to enable Burnetts’ employees to not only keep up with important business updates and department comms but also engage with the personal aspect of each other’s lives and personal interests enabling a bespoke newsfeed which is relevant to each employee.
This will be populated with business updates, staff recognition, fundraising events, baking recipes, fantasy football, and anything else that our employees would like to celebrate and share.
On a wellbeing front we will be launching 10 minute lunch time yoga sessions for staff wherever they are working; home or the office.
