Solihull-headquartered housebuilder Hayfield has launched its 2022 Wellbeing Programme, designed to retain and recruit the very best personnel in the industry.
The Wellbeing Programme is based on monthly themes, supported by interactive webinars delivered by external consultants. A hardship fund, 24/7 employee assistance helpline, social events, private healthcare, and ongoing professional and personal development, are some of the other aspects of the Programme, to enable Hayfield’s employees to maintain good mental, physical, social, and financial health.
Sara Hope, Head of Human Resources for Hayfield said: “The health and wellbeing of all Hayfield’s employees is our priority and we have invested significantly in a bespoke support programme. The challenges brought about by the pandemic have taken their toll, so we want to demonstrate how we care for everyone’s physical, social, financial, and mental health in a number of proactive ways.
“A key element of our 2022 Wellbeing Programme is a series of monthly webinars, which provides everyone with the opportunity to take time out of the working day to focus on their own wellness. January’s fitness and nutrition webinar – delivered by Incite – was about creating healthy habits, so it was a great way to kick-off this year’s programme of events and activities.”
In addition to healthy habits, the other monthly Wellbeing Programme themes are love and kindness; sleep; stress busting; laughter and smiling; flexibility and resilience; gratitude; the great outdoors; suicide awareness; managing anxiety; mental health; and the joy of giving.
Andy Morris, Managing Director of Hayfield said: “We are growing at a very rapid pace, so retaining and attracting the very best people to be part of the Hayfield team is vital to fulfilling our business plan objectives. To have access to specialists who can demonstrate ways to improve flexibility, rotation, and pain-free movement, is so important for all our team, whether they are site or office-based. I am looking forward to seeing how everyone interacts with the ongoing Wellbeing Programme, as it’s certainly introducing some fresh-thinking into our business, and dare I say the wider industry.”
Hayfield has eight live sites in Oxfordshire, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Wiltshire and Buckinghamshire, where eco-efficient family homes are being constructed in prime semi-rural and edge of town settings. Hayfield is seeking to deliver a turnover of £150m during 2022. The company is gearing up to deliver 500 homes annually, supported by a land portfolio of prime sites.
