CLPSI have been awarded the prestigious Ibec KeepWell Mark accreditation!

Ibec provides a wide range of professional direct services to members including employer advice and representation on HR and industrial relations issues. The on-the-ground aspect of this service places Ibec in a unique position of being close to the challenges and concerns of employers.

In 2017, Ibec introduced the KeepWell Mark, a workplace wellbeing accreditation which helps companies demonstrate their organisation’s commitment to improving the lives of those who work for them. The accreditation process includes benchmarking and an assessment against recognised standards in workplace health, safety and wellbeing with a personalised report being prepared with recommendations for corporate wellbeing strategy and a certificate of accreditation which is valid for two years.

Capita Life & Pensions Services in Ireland (CLPSI) have been working on a wellbeing theme for the last four years and this placed CLPSI in a great position to move forward and seek the Ibec KeepWell Mark accreditation.

Earlier this year the CLPSI People Engagement Group in conjunction with an additional 24 employees formed 8 working groups collectively known as the CLPSI Wellbeing Group and set to work on the completion of self-assessments and the production of evidence packs for each of the following topics:

Leadership, Absence Management, Health & Safety, Mental Health, Smoke Free, Physical Activity, Healthy Eating, Intoxicants

The self-assessments and evidence packs were recently audited by Ibec together with interviews conducted with colleagues working in the company. The assessment day went very well, following a full office tour, a viewing of the various communal areas that CLPSI use for activities such as yoga and fitness activities, and a number of meetings with colleagues outside the Wellbeing Group to establish that the evidence detail provided was a true reflection of life in CLPSI.

We are delighted to confirm that our hard work has not gone unrewarded and CLPSI recently received some very exciting news from Ibec:

Congratulations Capita Life & Pensions Services, you have achieved the KeepWell Mark!

This is a fantastic achievement for CLPSI and is something of which we are very proud.

CLPSI will continue to grow our KeepWell initiatives and continue to create better outcomes for  everyone.

Sean Holland, Managing Director, CLPSI
