Our Lamplighter employee programme was started more than a decade ago to improve nutrition, fitness and mental resilience of employees. A dedicated Medical & Occupational Health (M&OH) team along with the Human Resource (HR) department of the company has strategically developed this programme to address the wide-ranging health risks in employees of the company.
As a part of the programme, based on annual health medical checks employees are assigned colour codes as per their health quotient. The M&OH team conducts various health promotion and protection programmes to help employees transit from red to amber and from amber to green zones by motivating them to make lifestyle changes. In many occasions the team provides support and necessary treatment for employees identified in red and amber categories.
In 2016, there was a renewed focus on mental fitness of our employees. We launched a mental health and counselling programme for employees across locations. Toll-free helplines were set up in nine different Indian languages. Employees could speak to a counsellor and seek advice on physical and mental health related matters.
In another innovative employee well-being initiative, we launched the ‘Living Room’ at our head office in Mumbai — the first-of-its kind relaxation zone for employees to access during working hours. We also organised ‘Wellbeing Week’ with the theme of ‘Your Wellbeing, Your Way’ for employees across India.
Specific workshops were organised for factory workers to help them deal with issues like burn out, stress, lack of sleep, and lack of physical activity, and increase awareness about the importance of holistic well-being in achieving their inner potential.
Around 12,000 factory workers benefitted from the different workshops on holistic well-being. Your Wellbeing, Your Way initiative saw participation from over 7,000 employees across India.
