    Why everyday should be ‘Companies that Care Day’

    Why everyday should be ‘Companies that Care Day’

    Posted on February 22nd, 2021

    Feeling like your employer truly understands, values, and cares about you can make all the difference to your working life. In fact, it can have a hugely positive effect on your life outside the office too. And so this year the Occupational Health professionals at YourGP are lending their support to Companies that Care Day on 18th March. Because we believe that by helping businesses make simple, positive changes to their working environments and culture, we can boost the physical and mental health and well-being of employees everywhere.

    The aim of Companies that Care Day is to educate and inspire employers to analyse their work culture and strive to integrate 10 key factors into their daily business practices:

    10 characteristics of socially responsible employers

    1. Sustain a work environment founded on dignity and respect for all employees
    2. Make employees feel their jobs are important
    3. Cultivate the full potential of all employees
    4. Encourage individual pursuit of work/life balance
    5. Enable the well-being of individuals and their families through compensation, benefits, policies and practises
    6. Develop great leaders, at all levels, who excel at managing people as well as results
    7. Appreciate and recognize the contributions of people who work there
    8. Establish and communicate standards for ethical behaviour and integrity
    9. Get involved in community endeavours and/or public policy
    10. Consider the human toll when making business decisions

We provide an extensive range of services and can create bespoke packages to suit your individual business needs. By working with us and investing in the health of your employees, the whole team can benefit from being part of a supportive working environment where everyday feels like Companies that Care Day.

    I was directed to YourGP by my health insurance when traveling on Scotland. I was with intense pain on my feet and had an appointment with Dr Doogan, and what an incredible doctor she is!

    She explained everything with the most detail and patience possible, listened even with more patience and care, it’s so rare nowadays seeing passionate doctors for their jobs like Dr Doogan.
