*** Covid-19 Update ***

Stonbury are immensely proud to be supporting our clients across the UK at such a crucial time and have been designated as 'key workers' by DEFRA and the UK water utility companies. Our teams are working tirelessly to help secure and maintain drinking water supplies, ensuring clean and safe drinking water is provided without interruption to critical services such as our hospitals as well as the general public. Now more than ever, the safety and wellbeing of our staff is of the utmost importance and we have adapted our safe working practices to ensure social distancing precautions are in place and that the correct hygiene practices are being followed. Making safety is our priority, and we endeavour to make sure everyone at Stonbury goes home safe to their family.

// Mental Health Awareness Workshops

As part of our company-wide wellbeing initiatives, we are continuing our work with Jon Manning of Arthur Ellis Mental Health Support, winner of Anglian Water’s 2018 Wellbeing Innovation Initiative 2018 award.

This month he ran workshops at the Chawston and Crewkerne offices where he focused on identifying early signs of mental health issues as well as providing input to managers on how to support employees experiencing poor mental health. Jon also presented his app-based mental health support tool which includes a range of exclusive mental health and wellbeing material. 

All in attendance were provided with individual logins to gain access to an online portal, which is able to track, store and improve support of mental health related issues, thus allowing employees and their managers to proactively develop healthy ways of working together. 

Following the success of the workshops so far, we have scheduled several more workshops to be delivered at various Stonbury locations across the UK.
