Supporting Health and Wellbeing
We believe in offering you as much support as possible, both during and outside of work.

Your health and wellbeing is important to us and that is why we offer the Medicash Employee Assistance Programme to all our employees and their families.
Whether you need help managing stress, balancing your budget or balancing your life, Medicash offers a free consultancy service to you and your family.
This service is available 24/7, 365 days per year and is 100% confidential.
With unlimited telephone helplines, face-to-face counselling and the ability to obtain second doctor's opinions, Medicash provides immediate information as well as answers and advice on a range of workplace and personal issues.
Muir is also signed up to the Mindful Employer Charter.
The Mindful Employer Charter provides information, advice and support for staff experiencing stress, anxiety, depressions and other mental health conditions.
Mental Health First Aid
Members of Muir staff have received training as Mental Health First Aiders so they can support colleagues during difficult times.
They can recognise the signs and symptoms of mental health issues; are able to talk about and signpost colleagues to available support.
Health and Wellbeing Initiatives
Muir holds regular health and wellbeing initiatives in line with the Association's events calendar to provide information to our staff on a variety of wellbeing issues.
Some of the initiatives have included:
Time to Talk Day - Taking some time to catch up with a colleague for a cup of tea and a chat.
Stress Awareness Month - Posting pictures of some of the things you do on Twitter to help your wellbeing throughout the month. Share them with colleagues in your team meetings or during online sessions designed to help staff deal with high-pressure situations.
Walk this May - Staff either laced up their walking boots, tightened up their trainers, or simply stepped outside to participate in National Walking Month in recent years, with participants entered into prize-winning draws.
