LSI Architects has been ranked the second-best UK Employer for Workplace Wellbeing in Mind’s Workplace Wellbeing Index 2021-22

The Practice was ranked second in Mind’s sixth annual Workplace Wellbeing Index this year, out of 119 organisations to take part nationally. The Practice also received a Gold level reaccreditation, meaning it has successfully embedded mental health into its policies and practices and demonstrated a long-term, in-depth commitment to staff mental health.

We are especially pleased that the practice has also placed 2nd in the staff survey section, and are proud to share that 96% of staff at LSI felt that the organisation supports their mental health.

Mind’s Workplace Wellbeing Index is a benchmark of best policy and practice, celebrating the good work employers are doing to promote and support positive mental health, and providing key recommendations on the specific areas where there is room to improve.

HR Manager Katrina Parsons, who previously won the Mind award for Wellbeing Lead, said:

“We are delighted to be reaccredited as Gold in the Mind Workplace Wellbeing Index for the 5th year running. We aim to create an open culture where there is no stigma around mental health and people can feel confident to talk about their mental health without fear of being judged. We do this by giving our people the skills and knowledge to support their own mental health, but also that of their colleagues.

“Ultimately, we want our staff to be happy, healthy, highly skilled and highly motivated, and we believe that our ongoing work on wellbeing thoroughly supports this.”

LSI have been working alongside Mind since 2016, where the practice was one of 30 organisations to take part in the very first Workplace Wellbeing Index.

In recognition of Mind’s continuous support since then, a team of 23 LSI employees are taking on the National 3 Peaks Challenge in September, with a fundraising target of £20,000. You can read more about the challenge here.
