Ingen Ideas, the oil and gas field development consultancy has been presented with a Gold Healthy Working Lives Award.
Led by NHS Scotland, the Healthy Working Lives programme supports employers through various initiatives to develop a safer, healthier and more motivated workforce.
Ingen’s award demonstrates the organisation’s ongoing commitment to improving the health, safety and wellbeing of its employees. Evidence of positive employee behaviour changes, an embedded culture of wellbeing, and a special focus on quality and diversity in the workplace meant that Ingen made the step up from Silver to Gold status.
Ingen’s General Manager, Wayne Strachan said: “We’ve seen tangible benefits from our participation in the Healthy Working Lives programme. Our employees are more aware of health, safety and wellbeing issues, and are empowered to be proactive in workplace improvements. Through consultation and engagement we have really enhanced our corporate culture; which has contributed to our high rate of staff retention rate of 96%”.
HR Manager, Cheryl Newman added: “We’ve achieved three awards in three years from Healthy Working Lives and I’m delighted that our efforts continue to be celebrated. However, I’m prouder of the fact that our initiatives have made Ingen an even better place to work, and we have seen the evidence of that.”
