In April 2018, Seatronics were awarded with the Bronze, Silver and Gold Healthy Working Lives award at the annual ceremony. Seatronics are the only company in the Grampian area to be awarded with all three level achievements within a 12-month period.
As part of their “Fit for Life” campaign, Seatronics began their HWL journey in 2016 and achieved the Gold award in April 2018, having been awarded Bronze and Silver together in September 2017. Seatronics are committed to promoting and assisting their employees in their health and well-being, in the knowledge that a healthy workforce is a more motivated and productive workforce. Seatronics employees are actively encouraged and supported to increase their physical activity levels through opportunities to participate in local sporting events, company fitness challenges and some subsidised fitness classes.
Seatronics has a competitive workforce so the Annual Fitness Challenge and Seatronics Slimdown Showdown created a great amount of interest. Seatronics employees are also kept health and safety aware through a variety of campaigns and online training. Healthier eating and diet is actively encouraged through the provision of free fruit, a healthy section in the tuck shop, group slimming activities and the Seatronics’ recipe book.
Although the award focuses on Scotland, Seatronics has included their global offices in many of the campaigns & activities to ensure all employees worldwide have access to the benefits and opportunities this initiative has developed within Seatronics.
Healthy Working Lives activities are now a normal part of Seatronics working practice, long may the journey continue!
