Minimum Origin Green Targets Required Annually = 6
Spotlight Target Area: Employee Wellbeing
Annalitten Foods have been a member of Origin Green since 2017. The business employs twenty staff members. As a family run business, staff wellbeing is highly valued and the company believes that its strength is in its well-trained, healthy workforce. Ensuring its staff’s physical and mental well-being is a vital part of its Human Resource function.
With this in mind, members of their Origin Green team Damien O’Reilly and Edmund Morton, set a target to establish an employee wellness programme consisting of 3 initiatives throughout each year of their plan.
Prioritising Staff Health
In 2019 Annalitten Foods succeeded this target by implementing 8 initiatives with their staff’s health and wellbeing being a priority, among these actions are:
Introducing a smoking reduction programme
Setting up an employee shop where the eggs can be purchased at a reduced rate
Donating eggs to staff when there is surplus stock
Creating standing desks on site and introducing standing meetings
Annalitten’s ambition is to aim for continuous sustainability improvement across their business and their other exemplary target performance areas reflects this.
“The strength of our team is not the individual members, the strength of each member is what makes us a team.”
