As a result of the pandemic THE were engaged to work with Alstom Rail to provide socially distanced Boosting Immunity workshops to rail maintenance workers.  The aim of which was to inform about diet, sleep, energy and hygiene to not only reduce the risk for COVID 19 but the risk for coughs, colds and flu over the winter months.  


“Hi, I work at Alstom Nottingham, hope you don’t mind me saying, we had a Health and Wellbeing meeting with Ellie Roberts on 27/10/20.  She is amazing and had brilliant advice, I thoroughly enjoyed it and tool loads of good tips, especially helping my sleeping with chamomile tea – she is a star!  So massive thank you Ellie, take care and stay safe.  Dave Heywood.”

Anna Mason, Managing Director of THE says; ‘We are delighted to be working in partnership with the PA Forum. We feel it is of vital importance to offer people a route map to well being that provides practical and down to earth tips that will help people take small steps to health improvement.  We have all suffered one way or another through COVID this year and we believe the legacy left by the pandemic will be huge impacting people’s day to day lives.  We are pleased to be able to offer some wellbeing assistance and support including top tips that can be shared with participants’ workplaces.”  

THE’s handpicked healthcare practitioners are trained professionals working within their fields and include dietitians, nutritional therapists, massage therapists, clinicians, mental health experts.  All are highly skilled to engage and educate the workforce.  

The Healthy Employee will be working in partnership with PA Forum each month, throughout 2021 to deliver webinars for our members including topics such as Mindful Eating, Unconscious Bias, Brain Food, Afternoon Slump, Menopause, Improved Sleep, Resilience and much, much more

 Fay Gleeson, Executive Personal Assistant, SCC says “SCC have worked successfully with the Healthy Employee for more than 10 years.  We initially started with organising a weight loss programme, where Anna worked with our colleagues around their weight loss goals.  But now the Healthy Employee programme has become so much more than a weight loss programme.  Over recent times we have conducted Healthy Employee days/workshops which has seen more than 250 colleagues on a single day attend the onsite programme where they have engaged with the Healthy Employee around healthy eating, lowering cholesterol, managing stress, mental health in the workplace, stop smoking support, BMI testing and many more support sessions. Two sessions have proved to be hugely popular, these are onsite yoga sessions that take place during lunch session, as well as dedicated days for Anna’s professional masseur to attend our office locations (6 across the UK) and provide free massage sessions for staff, this one always has a waiting list!   These programmes have proved to be hugely beneficial to SCC’s staff over the years and we have received superb staff feedback.  Our work with the Healthy Employee also forms the backbone of SCC’s CSR policy and strategy.  Anna and her team are always hugely professional and confidential and are a trusted partner to SCC and we look forward to working with them over the coming years.”

Daniel Skermer, Founder of PA Forum said “We are so excited about our partnership with Anna and her team, the health and wellbeing of our members is so important and to be able to work with such a highly regarded and professional organisation such as The Healthy Employee will give many of our community so many ideas and inspiration as to how workplace wellness initiatives are important now more than ever. As we continue to either work remotely in what we hope will be a post Covid-19 world or for some of our members adjust to work within the ever changing office environment The Healthy Employee Team will be available to offer help, advice and support for our members to achieve prosperous start to 2021 and offer ongoing support throughout the year”

I would highly recommend using The Healthy Employee at similar events in future”. – HSES Project Partner, Balfour Beatty

I’m so proud of everyone that has taken part, and it makes you realise that small changes can make a big difference.
