As a result of the company’s ongoing dedication to improving the health of the workforce we are proud that Pendennis has been awarded GOLD status for the Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Workplace Health Award! This is a county standard of good practice and a quality mark of health and wellbeing in the workplace. The aim of the award is to act as a toolkit to encourage employers to think about ways to improve the health and wellbeing of their employees. Pendennis particularly impressed the assessment team with their Health & Wellbeing initiative which is now on offer to all employees, the new canteen which offers various healthy options at low prices, the weekly after-work choir, a very successful Health Education Week in October, a SimplyHealth cash plan, and on-going support for staff who are off work coupled with initiatives for getting staff back to work.
As the assessment team explained, “we witnessed Pendennis Shipyard as an excellent employer with the health and wellbeing of the staff at the heart of their work and development. This is a phenomenal first year within the awards process, Pendennis Shipyard are fully worthy of GOLD status and could be an excellent mentor for future reference. Well done, we continue to look forward to hearing about and seeing more developments in the future. Keep up the great work.”
