Highway Traffic Management has been recognised with an
award for its commitment to workplace wellbeing.

Highway Traffic Management (HTM), a leading provider of traffic management solutions,  was recognised with a Gold Award in Mind’s eighth annual Workplace Wellbeing Index. The Gold Award means mental health policies and practices have been successfully embedded and HTM has demonstrated a long-term, in-depth commitment to the mental health of its staff.

Mind’s Workplace Wellbeing Index is a benchmark of best policy and practice, celebrating the good work employers are doing to promote and support positive mental health, and providing key recommendations on the specific areas where there is room to improve. This year, Mind surveyed almost 19,000 employees across the 55 employers participating in the Index, with HTM ranking 19th place of participating employers.

“We have been participating in the index for a few years now and it has always provided a great amount of insight into what we are doing well and the areas where we can improve our mental health and wellbeing support. It’s been a great guide and a good way to measure ourselves as a business in terms of this key area of H&S,” said Senior HSEQ Manager, Matt Higgs.

The index measures areas such as culture and engagement, people management, knowledge and skills, wellbeing initiatives and support in order to create its score, with HTM scoring above the index average in 90% of these areas.

“The gradual progression we have made with the index score over the years demonstrates our long-term commitment to mental health and wellbeing and the value the index has provided in highlighting the areas we need to focus on to continue improving,” commented HTM’s Managing Director, Greg Baldwin.

“I’m incredibly proud of this long-term commitment to employee wellbeing and it’s great to see this evidenced by achieving gold in our fifth year of participating in the index,” he continued.

“I recommend more businesses to consider using the index as both a measure and guide if they are looking to invest in and improve their workplace wellbeing. It provides structured recommendations based upon your scoring which has clearly helped us to improve in this area, as our improving scores have shown.”

The temporary traffic management company has placed a significant focus upon mental health and wellbeing since 2017 when they launched the Talk More initiative, and have been vocal about the need for more businesses within the highways and wider construction industry to prioritise mental health within the workplace.

Andrew Vale, Director of Commercial Income at Mind, said:

“We’re thrilled to celebrate organisations like Highway Traffic Management, who have demonstrated to their staff that they value and support their wellbeing as a priority. Good mental health is vitally important in the workplace. We spend a huge amount of time at work, and it can – and does – have an impact on our mental health. That’s why the commitment that HTM have made to their employees is really significant in ensuring people can get the mental health support they might need.

“Our Workplace Wellbeing Index continues to be the gold standard for mental health and wellbeing best practice in the workplace. This year’s Index took place against ongoing challenges, with political uncertainty at a high and legislative changes on the horizon. With this in mind, it’s important we continue to prioritise the mental health and wellbeing support we offer at work.”
