MVF has been shortlisted in 3 categories at the This Can Happen Awards which celebrate companies which have shown excellence in their approach towards positive mental health for their people.
MVF made the finals for:
Best Mental Health in the Workplace Strategy - celebrating our pioneering Be Well strategy which has seen the implementation of an employee assistance programme, trained mental health first aiders and mindfulness club - to mention just a few.
Best Covid-19 Company Response - Internal - which recognised MVF’s efforts to provide support during the pandemic including bringing in a virtual GP service, offering Sanctus coaching and the headspace app to all MVFers and listening to our teams to see how we could better support them through uncertain circumstances.
Employee Network of the Year - which recognises MVF’s LEEP (Lived Experiences of Ethnic People) Network’s work alongside our Head of Talent Brand and Health & Wellbeing Partner to address the pressures on LEEPers that arose from the killing of George Floyd, the subsequent BLM movement and then the disproportionate impacts of Covid.
Thisis a huge milestone and worthy recognition for MVF’s Wellbeing team led by our Health & Wellbeing Partner, the Networks managed by the Network Leadership Teams and led by our Head of Talent Brand, the wider People team and all the MVFers who contributed to helping our colleagues through the events of the last year.
