At Holland & Barrett we believe that health and wellness should be a way of life for everyone.
This means we all have our part to play in creating an environment where colleague wellbeing is a priority, diversity is embraced, and everyone feels like they belong at work.
We all have a responsibility to role model and allow for great wellbeing, champion inclusivity, and continue to learn with patience and empathy.
The term ‘wellbeing’ reflects emotional, environmental, financial, mental, physical, and social wellbeing. From our Mental Health First Aiders and Employee Assistance programme, inclusive conversations, reasonable adjustments, to pregnancy loss, we have great support and HR policies to help all our colleagues.
From our video library of LGBTQ+ colleagues telling their story, to learning more about the importance of language and pronouns in the workplace, there's so many opportunities for colleagues to get stuck into events and help raise awareness all year round.
Exploration of different religions and beliefs, as well as deep dives into afro-textured hair, anti-racism and allyship toolkits. There're so many resources available to self-learn that are regularly updated for everyone to stay educated.
With a huge focus on both men's and women's health and gender equality we have guidance across topics like menopause and men's mental health to name a few. Often closely linked to conversations in the LGBTQ+ space, we encourage colleagues to highlight how all areas of wellbeing, diversity, and inclusion intersect - after all that's what makes you, you!
From the exciting journey as new parents, support tools for single parent households, to where to you can get guidance as a first-time carer and more. We have helpful tools, resources, and support through our HR policies for various life stages including flexible working options.
'Disability' includes physical and non-visible disabilities as well as neurodiversity. Our reasonable adjustment guidance, disability essentials toolkit and conversations around how all areas of wellbeing, diversity, and inclusion overlap prove crucial in both our colleague and customer teams to continue creating an inclusive workplace.
