We have a holistic and centralised approach to health and wellbeing at Tetra Pak. We use central governance and run a rolling programme of initiatives to drive progress, including a global mental wellbeing programme.
We are in the process of rolling out a wellbeing programme across our global organisation. The programme uses a “train the trainer” approach to provide local HR managers with the skills to run and support similar wellbeing programmes in their own countries.
The programme provides three levels of support for employees.
Primary support. This raises awareness of different causes and symptoms and suggests steps employees can take to manage their own wellbeing.
Secondary support. This provides tools for managers, including a risk assessment and training on how to conduct conversations around wellbeing.
Tertiary support. This gives support if or when a 'burn out' situation occurs. Our return to work process ensures an employee is not placed in the same environment if this contributed to their burn out.
At the end of 2019, we appointed Laura Mohomed as our new Global Health & Wellbeing Manager. Her priority is to start the rollout of Global Mental Wellbeing Programme to new countries beyond the 14 in Europe, South America and Asia that are already participating.
All our market companies currently must ensure full compliance with legally required medical examinations for high-risk groups. Many manufacturing site companies also focus on employee health and wellness more broadly, from offering regular hearing and eyesight tests, routine vaccinations and ergonomic risk assessments; to stress management programmes, complementary therapies, advice on nutrition and healthy living, and alcohol and drug support.
