We have got behind partner charity Ben to raise awareness of World Mental Health Day, with the annual initiative Hats on 4 Ben.
In August we committed to raising funds for Ben for the next 12 month period after launching a new Employee Assistance Programme available through the charity to enhance the range of support available to all employees.
All employees got behind the annual fundraising initiative and donned a hat, raising £300.00 for the charity.
High on our agenda is the health and well-being of all employees, along with providing opportunities for employees to give something back, The partnership brings an alignment of these priorities from the services and support that Ben can offer, with a strong focus on the main pillars of a person’s well being; financial, physical, mental and social. By partnering together and gaining access to a range of support this is an excellent addition to our employee assistance programme.
Ben exists to support anyone who works directly in or is associated with the automotive industry and at current figures that means 800,000 individuals. Anyone who has worked in the automotive industry has access to free, confidential support and advice which can be accessed through their extensive website, or by person, by reaching out to their dedicated support team. Furthermore, for those in later life, Ben also offers care centres and their award-winning retirement village for the more independent.
Nik Griffiths, Operations Director at S&G Response said, “BEN is a phenomenal charity which we are delighted to partner with. The initiative Hats on 4 Ben was a really great way to raise vital funds for the charity but also to promote the help and support available for our employees and the wider industry for mental health. It was great to see so many of our employees get behind the initiative.
