Service Feedback

‘I have been lucky enough to work with Working Towards Wellbeing on a number of occasions and each time I have been completely impressed with the speed of response and support they  have offered both the business and our team members. They are reliable, personable, completely trustworthy and very commercial, so while the wellbeing of the employee is paramount, they are also very aware of the commercial context and how they can work within this.  Without a doubt, we have successfully supported some of our team during very difficult periods of their lives and we would not have been able to do this so well without the support of Working Towards Wellbeing.’

Service Feedback

I personally have worked with Working Towards Wellbeing for many years and when recruiting locally they are a real asset as they care about their clients and go to great lengths to ensure that the client is right for the jobs that we advertise and that they will fit in with our environment.   Their Employment Advisors have visited on numerous occasions and taken time to get to know the working conditions for each department plus met the Heads of Departments to gauge management styles and pace of work.

Just wanted to let you know that thanks to your support Mr D was able to find employment and is over the moon.  He wanted me to thank you for your support. Mr D shared that the Employment Advisor had informed him of a potential job and he had soon after gone for an interview and was successful in being offered the position. Mr D stated that he was doing so much better and shared the following “There has been a massive change and I couldn’t have done it without the support of the Employment Advisor. I feel so much better. Thank you.”
