Ben is urging automotive sector employees to engage with it about their health and wellbeing after launching its latest 2019 Industry Survey.
The automotive sector benevolent charity is asking individuals working in the automotive community to share details of the biggest health and wellbeing challenges they face as part of an effort to ensure the charity can continue offering the right support to those in need.
Ben’s third annual survey is open to anyone who works, or has worked, in the automotive industry.
In an effort to gain as much insight as possible the charity is also is urging automotive industry employers to share the survey link with their employees – so the charity can best support them in the future.
Rachel Clift, health and wellbeing director at Ben, said: “We are listening to the people who work in the automotive industry and we would like to encourage all employees to take part in our Industry Survey 2019.
“We’re also encouraging automotive employers to share the survey link with their employees.
“This is the third year that we have run the survey, which has proven to be hugely beneficial in helping us understand the biggest issues affecting the automotive community today.”
Clift said that the charity “really do listen” to automotive industry people, adding that the insights revealed from each annual survey are vital if Ben is to continue offering the relevant health and wellbeing support now and in the future.
Research already conducted by Ben has established that 91% of employees had been affected by a health & wellbeing issue in the last year.
Additionally, 64% of employees said poor sleep was affecting their health and wellbeing.
Following the results of previous surveys, Ben has been developing its services to offer people more choice in how they receive support, for their mental health in particular.
Ben also developed online support and advice to help people improve their sleep, which has been viewed 4,400 times since launching in May 2019.
This content on our website looked at key issues that can affect sleep, in particular stress, given that 57% of people told Ben they been experiencing stress at work.
Ben has also been working with employers to deliver workplace sessions on ‘Coping with stress and pressure’.
Clift added: “Thank you to everyone who takes part in this survey, we really appreciate your time and feedback.”
