Taking place on 10 October 2023, World Mental Health Day is an annual event that brings attention to mental health issues and fosters awareness and understanding about the importance of wellbeing.

World Mental Health Day is a day to reflect on the significance of mental health, challenge stigmas, and promote support for those struggling with mental health conditions. At STH Westco, this is something we take very seriously.

Committed to nurturing a workplace that prioritises the mental health of our employees all year round, here are just some of the benefits we offer to support the overall welfare of our team.

Cashback and Discounts

TELUS Health (formerly Lifeworks) offers our employees cashback and discounts on various services, encouraging them to engage in self-care and leisure activities without breaking the bank. Through our partnership with TELUS, we help to support the financial and mental health of our people. We also provide a range of further employee discounts.

WeCare Support

WeCare is a comprehensive support program that includes mental health and wellbeing support, as well as financial and legal advice. Demonstrating our commitment to our employees’ emotional health during challenging times, the program offers a range of services to STH Westco employees, such as access to 24/7 bereavement counselling and legal advice on things such as probate, wills, and power of attorney,

Life Assurance Cover

In the unfortunate event of an employee’s passing, we will pay two times their salary to their chosen family members, offering financial support during an emotionally challenging time.

Birthday Benefit

Recognising the importance of celebrating personal milestones, we offer our employees a special birthday benefit that lets them enjoy some additional time off with the people who matter most to them.

Casual Fridays

Casual Fridays allow our employees to dress comfortably, fostering a relaxed atmosphere and promoting a positive work environment.

Golf Membership

We offer a golf membership for those inclined towards sports and outdoor activities, encouraging physical exercise and relaxation.

Company Car Scheme

Some of our employees have the opportunity to participate in our company car scheme, enhancing their commuting experience and demonstrating our commitment to their convenience and comfort.

World Mental Health Day serves as a reminder to prioritise mental health and wellbeing, not just on this day, but every day.

At STH Westco, we strive to create an environment where our employees feel supported and cared for, both mentally and physically. Through our diverse range of benefits, we hope to contribute to a happier, healthier, and more balanced work-life experience for all our team members.
