Battenhall Wellbeing: launching personalised team therapy on-demand

At Battenhall, we’ve always been proud to say that mental health is one of our top priorities. We’ve focused on workplace benefits that foster a healthy mind since we launched eight years ago, including flexible working, wellbeing allowances and unlimited holiday, as well as our own dedicated Health Coach to support the team in recent years.

But the pandemic has brought fresh challenges and some new approaches. During the past 18 months we have asked our colleagues what more we could do to look after their wellbeing, and with the information that came back, we made significant changes to offer even more support. These new ways include: 

  • Three extra ‘Battenhall bank holidays’ in 2021 to give people more time to recharge
  • Lockdown bonus allowances to give our employees the chance to create the best WFH environment
  • Regular care packages and wellness goodies to keep our team in good physical health
  • Meeting-free Fridays to give us all a break from the video calls

Our latest initiative, however, goes even further: it is a tailored and personalised therapy service to help protect colleagues’ mental health, which will become a part of Battenhall’s standard benefits package for all employees.

Battenhall Wellbeing

Ahead of this year’s World Mental Health Day on October 10, we’re proud to be able to expand our Battenhall Wellbeing offering by giving all our employees access to free, independent, on-demand therapy on an ongoing basis. 

Each member of the Battenhall team can choose to be matched with a fully-qualified independent therapist, based on their individual needs. They’ll be able to talk to their therapist through a chat function, voice notes and 1-2-1 video sessions – with no waiting lists and no extra expense to them.

But we won’t stop here. We’ll continue listening to our team to ensure we’re supporting wherever it’s needed, and creating the happiest work environment possible – whether that means more smoothies in the drinks fridge, or mental health initiatives that will truly make a difference.
