Rostrum, the PR, content and social media agency has engaged employee health and wellbeing specialists Health Shield to provide the agency’s team with an employee benefits and wellbeing programme designed to improve and support good mental and physical health.

Michael Kahn, Director, Resources and Development at Rostrum, comments:

“Rostrum is investing in Health Shield as an innovative and compelling offering for physical and mental wellbeing for our whole team. The pandemic has made it harder for us to assess, manage and improve physical and mental health outcomes for Rostrum people. We’re confident that working with Health Shield will lead to better results for us as a business in terms of the team’s overall health and wellbeing.”

Each Rostrum team member has access to Health Shield’s Health Cash Plan and My Wellness offering, providing them with a range of benefits, including:

  • Cash reimbursements on the cost of everyday healthcare for the team and their dependents, including, dental, optical, physiotherapy, and health consultant costs
  • Access to 24-hour counselling support and a 24-hour online GP surgery
  • Private prescription service
  • Thrive Coaching via the My Wellbeing App
  • Instant access to a range of health assessments and personal coaching tools
  • Discounts on a range of fitness and wellbeing initiatives, including gym memberships

Rostrum has also enrolled the team onto Health Shield’s reward programme, Health Shield PERKS, which provides deals, cash back offers and discounts on travel, cinema, supermarket, and health and beauty products.

Jason Dunks, Sales Director at Health Shield, said:

‘‘Employee wellbeing is quite simply integral to business productivity and ongoing sustainability. Rostrum is well aware that its people are its most important asset and giving them the immediate-access, personalised and every day health and wellbeing support they need to stay happy, healthy and motivated is top of the agenda. As is the ability for the business to monitor and assess outcomes, ensuring the programme is well used, valued whilst also identifying any problem areas so that support can be provided. Our innovative health plans are designed to keep employees and businesses in the best of health, so it’s the perfect partnership and we’re excited to be able to roll these out to the Rostrum team.”

Aliya Vigor-Robertson, JourneyHR, said:

“We work with Rostrum on HR strategy and solutions.  Investing in employee wellbeing has never been so important and we recommended Health Shield as a strategic investment and benefit for Rostrum’s employees.  We look forward to hearing the feedback from the Rostrum team as the programme is rolled out and the team engage with all it has to offer.”
