JJ Foodservice Appoints 11 Mental Health First Aiders
JJ Foodservice has invested in training eleven members of staff across ten branches to become qualified Mental Health First Aiders.
The move is part of its investment into supporting and promoting the wellbeing of staff.
Jaz Sandhu, Learning & Development Manager at JJ said, “It’s been a tough year and our team have worked incredibly heard through unprecedented circumstances.
“We want everyone to know that if they ever need to talk – there’s a qualified person nearby who is willing to listen and help.”
In addition to the Mental Health First Aiders, JJ offers an Employee Assistance Programme, which is a free, confidential telephone support service, which gives employees access to counsellors and advisors 24 hours a day, seven days a week and 365 days a year.
Staff can use the service any time for support with emotional, medical, legal and financial issues.
