‘Health and wellbeing is a vital part of our business and always will be, especially now
Henry Brothers Ltd, a leading, privately owned construction company, employs around 200 people.
As one of the first companies in Northern Ireland to achieve CORE, the Business In The Community Standard for Responsible Business, back in 2014, it progressed to take Gold Level for its CORE renewal in 2018.
It has also recently been re-accredited with Gold Level for its 2021 renewal.
With a commitment to “making a positive impact on the wellbeing of our workforce and the wider community”, the Magherafelt-based business is headed by Ian Henry.
Group HR advisor, Shannon McGilligan, champions workplace and outreach health and wellbeing by running several initiatives to inspire and nurture its staff including wellbeing provisions, fitness events, gifts, Childcare Voucher Schemes, family-friendly policies, and a specific focus on mental health.
This year it established a partnership with Aware to help tackle mental health within the construction industry. The HR team also completed weekly welfare calls amassing 535 hours or 10 hours per week for this initiative during the pandemic.
Shannon said: “Health and wellbeing was very vital part of our business and it’s a continued focus.
“It’s great to be recognised for all the hard work that we put in.
“We go above and beyond for employees especially during the challenging times.”
