At Kohler Mira we believe in focusing on our associates’ financial, physical and psychological wellness. Supporting, caring for and encouraging every individual is woven into our culture. Put simply, it’s our commitment to put people at the heart of everything we do.
Across June, we held a four week Wellbeing event, inviting external providers to come in and host classes and to share advice on a range of subjects from martial arts techniques, to making healthy snack choices at work. A few of our associates even ran their own sessions, including a bike repair workshop for those who cycle to work or would like to start doing so, and a talk from one of our Production based associates, who also happens to be RNLI trained, on ‘how to stay safe around water’ – particularly relevant this time of year when associates head off on holiday.
This is our fourth year of running a Wellbeing event at our Gloucestershire sites, and we’ve seen that, increasingly, financial advice is one of the top requests from associates. This year, we ran three sessions which were aimed at three key life stages: starting out, mid-career and retirement. The sessions covered a range of subjects from mortgage advice to savings and investments.
Other classes included yoga, massage, mindfulness and meditation and two sessions on first aid. Again, at the request of associates who wanted to learn more, these sessions were aimed specifically at child first aid with CPR techniques and advice on burns and broken bones.
The four weeks were rounded off with a wellbeing walk, taking in the beautiful countryside around our Cheltenham HQ. And, every associate was given a copy of a newly created benefit book which explains all the benefits available as a Kohler Mira employee from free eye tests to discounted gym membership and flexible working, in one handy place.
