Employee wellbeing scores 93% at PRMA Consulting and bucks workplace trends

Fostering employee wellbeing is good for people and the organization1 yet, in some organizations, 53% of employees say bosses don’t care about their wellbeing.2

We are proud that colleagues at PRMA Consulting think differently and, in a recent employee survey, 93% of respondents said that their manager genuinely cares about their wellbeing and makes them feel valued. In this update, we look at four of PRMA Consulting’s latest initiatives that make these responses all the less surprising.

4 new workplace wellbeing and diversity initiatives 

PRMA Consulting is a member of Fishawack Health, and together our investment in wellbeing and diversity initiatives is one of the key attributes that makes working here so special. Here are 4 of our latest workplace initiatives:  

  1. Comprehensive time-off plans for all colleagues: in addition to existing leave entitlement, everyone has been gifted additional time-off to recharge during end-of-year holidays. Family and sick leave policies have been enhanced and a further two additional days of personal leave are available for colleagues to recognize a celebration or holiday. 
     
  2. A 21-day inclusion challenge: to help make inclusive culture a habit, our 21-day challenge offers daily activities such as educational sessions led by guest speakers and diversity dialogs in which our colleagues can share their own stories in a safe environment free of judgment. By equipping our colleagues with the knowledge and tools to recognize inequalities, they become empowered to uncover novel opportunities for our clients to build a healthier world for every patient. 
     
  3. New and revised policies: we are continually revisiting our policies to ensure our international workplaces are equitable, inclusive, and supportive. One example is our menopause policy which sets out the rights of colleagues experiencing menopausal symptoms at work and explains the support channels that are available. Alongside this, we provide information for all colleagues and support channels for colleagues affected by the menopause. 
     
  4. Employee achievement awards: our recognition scheme has been enhanced with end-of-year achievement awards that celebrate our colleagues and recognize the values of authenticity, valuing difference, owning the challenge, playing for the team, and enjoying the journey. 

3 ways that our managers maintain a supportive working environment 

In addition to our centralized initiatives, we empower our people managers to monitor and support the mental wellbeing of their team members. Aligned with guidance from mental health charity Mind,3 we encourage managers to lead positive change and maintain a supportive environment by: 

  1. Reflecting on your management style: how people feel they are managed is central to their wellbeing, and levels of engagement and motivation. 
     
  2. Building temperature checks into the culture of the team: speak regularly with your team members and ask how they’re feeling and, if they’re comfortable, to reflect on what might be causing them stress. 
     
  3. Developing an action plan with your team: your team’s action plan can explore and prioritize the issues that you have influence over. Everyone in your team has a role to play in maintaining healthy workplace so encourage members to lead on aspects of the plan.

We are always looking for people who will deliver first-class work 

Recruiting, developing, and retaining engaged and motivated colleagues is essential for the success of our business. That is why PRMA Consulting is committed to a strong and successful learning and development strategy with clear progression paths.
