In order for our business to be successful, we need to ensure that our colleagues feel supported and looked after, not only in terms of their career development, but also, importantly, in areas of physical and mental health.
Independent mental health support is available 24/7 for all of our employees. In Germany, this is delivered through the Fürstenberg Institut employee assistance programme (“EAP”), with BizSpace employees and their households also having access to an EAP at all times. Sirius has also invested in expanding the mental health first aider provision across the UK and Germany to encourage and support healthy mental and physical habits for our colleagues. Some of this support is part provided through the Sirius Training Centre which includes a number of wellbeing and health-related courses and training opportunities run in cooperation with the Fürstenberg Institut, covering a range of subjects such as happiness, dealing with stress, positive mindset, mindful leadership and other strategies to support the working environment.
We also offer our employees various sporting opportunities including gym, yoga, volleyball, football and running clubs, and a Company run, which we find is effective in fostering a healthy team spirit, in support of our collaborative culture. In addition to this, we run a bicycle leasing scheme to encourage more sustainable and healthy forms of transport and ran our first ever Health Day in October 2022 which provided information about nutrition, exercise and relaxation techniques.
