A Milton Keynes based tech company is the first to be awarded under the City Council’s new Healthy Workplace Standards scheme.
MK City Council launched the health and wellbeing standards for local workplaces last year. They are intended to help employers, even the smallest firms who don’t have the resources for a dedicated post or team, support the health and wellbeing of their workforce.
Clearview Intelligence submitted their evidence in November 2022 and has been awarded bronze status for their work across health and safety, inclusive employment, and other related measures.
36 MK workplaces have already signed up to the Healthy Workplace Standards including Cranswick Foods, Aero Tech Laboratories and Neal Landscapes.
“We’re excited that so many local organisations have already been in touch, and we’re delighted to present this first award to a local employer. Even small changes to the workplace can improve the health and wellbeing of your workforce, which has organisational benefits as well as personal ones - as it saves money and increases productivity. In Milton Keynes, we want to champion those employers who take workplace health seriously.” - Cllr Jane Carr, Cabinet member for Inequalities and Child Poverty
“We are delighted to be the first organisation to have achieved healthy workplace status and encourage other organisations to embark on this exciting journey. Our company is dedicated to continuing this process with the workplace health team at Milton Keynes City Council to achieve silver and gold status.” - Claire Mcfarlane, SHQE Manager at Clearview Intelligence
