The Craggs Energy Group team up with RJ8 to offer free mental health & wellbeing support to their staff and their families
Mental Health Awareness week runs from 9-15th May 2022 and this year The Craggs Energy are unveiling their new mental health and wellbeing initiative in partnership with mental health experts – RJ8. This support will be available to all employees, and their families across the company and the wider Craggs Energy Group. The package contains unlimited access to face-to-face, telephone or video call counselling for a wide range of concerns. In addition, access is provided for financial, legal and medical emergencies as well as mental health awareness training.
Richard Wallace, Group Managing Director said:
“At the Craggs Energy Group, we pride ourselves on being a company that nurtures a motivated, engaged and committed team. The overall well-being of our team is very important to us and creating a supportive environment is high on our priority list. We are pleased to be working with RJ8 to provide our staff with a highly trained and professional support network that is also available for anyone over 16 years old in their household. Furthermore, it’s important we reduce the stigma by talking openly, being a supportive employer and creating a safe space for our employees. Introducing this policy during Mental Health Awareness week has triggered open conversations, listening, and understanding.”
Rebecca Jane, Founder & CEO of RJ8 comments:
“We’re honoured to be working with The Craggs Energy Group and the backing we have received from the board in supporting their staff has been exceptional. We offered our ‘best advice’ and every suggestion we made was put in place. The dedication to the mental health of the Craggs staff has been second to none. Not only that, but our suggestions to look after the family of employees was firmly supported too. This means that Craggs now give free private mental health care to family living in the household of a Craggs employee. If every business looked after the mental health of their employees in the same way Craggs Energy has, the UK would not have the mental health crisis we have today.”
The Craggs Energy Group employs nearly 120 people and comprises five separate businesses all of which operate within the fuel, energy and infrastructure space operating across the UK. Their companies include northern-based Craggs Energy, LCM Environmental Services, Greenarc Energy, Greenarc Fuel Cards and Devon based Moorland Fuels.
