Agency staff offered mental health support services at engineering and manufacturing recruitment specialist

This World Mental Health Day (10th October 2019) inclusive employer E3 Recruitment (E3R), a recruitment agency which specialises in engineering and manufacturing recruitment, is offering all its employees and agency staff mental health support services.

In addition, E3R employees are raising money for the mental health charity Mind on World Mental Health Day by having a dress down day and donating to this amazing charity.

E3R employs over 30 individuals at both its Huddersfield Head office and its Rotherham office, which is made up of recruiters and operational staff. The company supplies temporary agency workers and contracts workers, as well as permanent staff, to a wide range of manufacturers in the Yorkshire region and further afield.

As a fully compliant and ethical recruiter, all temporary workers have equal treatment in terms of use of facilities, such as car parking and transport service. After 12 weeks, all workers have the same equal pay as permanent staff, automatic pension enrolment and paid annual leave.

James Soden E3R Director commented: “Here at E3R we take the wellbeing of our employees very seriously. Not only our in-house employees, but our agency workers that go out to our clients and work on behalf of E3R. It is vital that all of our workers have the right access to mental health support as and when required.

“Mental health and wellbeing is a hot topic at the moment, both today on World Mental Health Day and in general, as we become more aware of the devastating impact poor mental health can have on peoples’ live and their families, so it is more important than ever that this is discussed publicly and support systems are put in place to help people overcome their mental health issues. We are proud as an employer that we can be there for our staff when they really need us most.”

E3R is working with Able Futures which provides their employees and agency workers access to first-class work mental health support services, delivered by qualified health care professionals. The Able Futures programme offers reliable personalised support from a dedicated mental health professional. Individuals can access information and resource on an online portal, an out of hours service and signposting to specialist support – all confidentially at meetings at convenient office locations.

This is an entirely confidential service and therefore the first point of contact for E3R workers is to contact Able Futures directly through the website

At the end of last year E3R won an award for their inclusivity work. The agency’s in-house training platform highlights best practice amongst the teams and draws on the skills of each person – creating a truly inclusive induction and training programme. The agency also launched a project to increase the number of females applying for roles by removing gender bias from job adverts, as increasing the number of females working in engineering and manufacturing continues to be an industry-wide ambition.
