Frylite has been awarded Ibec’s workplace wellness accreditation, the KeepWell Mark.
The business, which currently employs over 200 employees throughout Ireland across all of its bases in Strabane (its headquarters), Dublin, Galway, Cork, Coleraine, and Lisburn.
Frylite has built success in the marketplace by ensuring food industry customers can rely on it and by building and developing its team.
Team development focuses on eight key aspects including leadership, physical activity, healthy eating, mental health, absence, smoking and intoxicants, as well as offering support for employee mental health.
Mental health support has been especially active during the Covid-19 pandemic, when the company also promoted staff connectivity between the team.
Frylite’s managing director, Eamon McCay, said, “We have a great team here at Frylite and we’ve always done whatever we can to invest in their health and wellbeing. The KeepWell Mark is valuable recognition of that but we’ll continue to keep raising our standards in terms of looking after our people, their health, wellbeing and safety.”
The KeepWell Mark is an evidence-based award that recognises Irish employers who invest in workplace health and wellbeing. Its aim is to help businesses benchmark workplace wellbeing activity through a set of systematic and methodical steps.
The framework includes a self-assessment, an onsite assessment from an Ibec approved external assessor, and culminates with a report that outlines areas for improvement – allowing a business to chart its way to success.
The accreditation focuses on eight key areas and how they impact the business, such as leadership, absence management, smoke free, physical activity, health and safety, mental health, healthy eating and intoxicants.
Frylite has met the Ibec criteria and will continue to develop workplace practices and processes that further enable and enhance employee wellbeing.
This latest award follows closely from last year’s success for Frylite who picked up the Deloitte Best Managed Company Award 2020.
