The Healthy Working Wales programme, delivered by Public Health Wales on behalf of Welsh Government, re-assessed our Corporate Health Standard this month.
We’re delighted and very proud to announce that we’ve continued to maintain our Gold Level standard!
It was a pleasure to showcase all the good work we do across a wide range of topics, and our confirmation letter from Healthy Working Wales included the following comments…
“The ethos and culture of wellbeing at Wrexham Council is progressive and comprehensive, having evolved to now include priorities such as compassionate leadership, preserving the wellbeing of an aging workforce and financial wellbeing.
“It is particularly noteworthy that wellbeing is high on the agenda of the senior leadership team and Elected Members, both in terms of support to initiatives and activities such as the Time to Talk event, but also in terms of the time and energy dedicated to creating a sound infrastructure for staff wellbeing.
“Wellbeing is at the core of the way the council operates, which was very clear both from the written submission for this assessment, the informative assessment meetings itself, and from the examples of personal stories that were shared with the assessor.
“(There is) sound and effective partnership with Trade Unions, who are key to disseminating and embedding the culture of health and wellbeing throughout the council.
“There is a tangible commitment to mental wellbeing at Wrexham Council, which strongly focuses on prevention.”
Cllr Beverly Parry Jones, Lead member for corporate services said: “I’d like to express my thanks to everyone who champions this important work across the council. “To maintain our Gold Level standard is excellent recognition of the progressive culture of promoting positive wellbeing that we have at Wrexham Council.”
