SUPPORTING
OUR PEOPLE

We know that our employees' wellbeing is key to flourishing at work – and in life. That's why we're dedicated to supporting them in a number of ways...

MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID TRAINING

Throughout the year we give employees the opportunity to become Mental Health First Aiders through accredited training company Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England, so they can offer accurate, timely and empathetic advice, signposting, and support to those struggling with their mental health both in store and Head Office.

SELF DEFENCE
CLASSES

SELF DEFENCE CLASSES

We recognise the importance of women feeling empowered and supporting them to develop their physical health. So we launched a six-week programme to equip our teams with the ability and knowledge to better protect themselves physically and confidently assess a dangerous situation, and navigate through it effectively.

YOGA

In response to the anxiety associated with the pandemic, we launched yoga sessions to support the mental health of our employees. These sessions were not only designed to improve their flexibility, strength, balance, and breathing, but also to alleviate stress and improve self-confidence.

STRESS AWARNESS MONTH

STRESS AWARNESS MONTH

In April 2021, we launched Stress Awareness Month at Hobbs. During this time, we send weekly emails with an array of tips to help employees manage stress and build their resilience, as well as inspiring TED Talks, articles and videos focused on managing stress.

RETAIL TRUST

We're proud to partner with Retail Trust, which offers employees and their families confidential emotional, financial and health support over the phone, face-to-face, or via their online wellbeing portal.
