“I first came across Loch Associates Group when, in my previous role, I needed a partner to deliver a raft of health initiatives – including mental health first aid training,” Mike explains. “I was really impressed by their expertise and approach and we soon started talking about ways we could combine our knowledge to produce a unique model for wellbeing in the workplace.”
Loch Wellbeing supports businesses to deliver the tools and strategies needed for people to be safe, healthy and happy at work.
“We have developed a wellbeing model for businesses of any size which begins with a ‘wellbeing promise’, a statement at the top level of the business and visible to both employees and customers,” Mike says. “Working closely with our clients, we make sure this is delivered throughout the organisation through policies, strategies, supporting materials and activities, which is then backed up with implementation and checking.”
He adds: “I am looking forward to partnering with some really progressive clients to demonstrate the benefits of putting wellbeing at the centre of their organisation and engaging their people to understand why it’s in place and regard it as something positive.”
Mike has also taken on the role of Development Director across Loch Associates Group – which provides a unique combination of employment law, HR consultancy, wellbeing programmes and mediation services delivered through Loch Employment Law, HR Advise Me, Loch Wellbeing and Loch Mediation.
“As a business we are responding to the need for a refocus on business owners and their employees’ wellbeing and we are delighted to welcome Mike as our Development Director,” Pam Loch, Managing Director of Loch Associates Group. “He is an expert in wellbeing, who brings with him many years’ experience in health and safety. With Mike onboard we are looking forward to rolling out Loch Wellbeing and sharing the benefits of signing up to our unique model.”
