We want our people to thrive, and for that reason we’re focused on both physical and mental wellbeing across Gateley.
From weekly fruit baskets, reduced gym memberships and yoga classes to sleep clinics, menopause workshops and conquering mountains together, we aim to support our people in a range of ways to be able to bring their best selves to work.
There is no health without mental health. We recognise that life has its ups and downs and our ability to cope with how we feel can vary at different points. We have trained and certified a large group of mental health first aiders across the business who can listen, support and if needed, signpost our people to professional help. Our line managers receive mandatory mental health training and we train all our people in how to build tools and skills for personal resilience. We have an employee assistance programme where all staff can access free counselling and support for a wide range of issues.
Our Thrive network supports the health and wellbeing of all employees to promote high levels of performance both physically and mentally across the group. The Thrive committee runs a series of events and training programmes throughout the year to raise awareness and to inspire our people to take care of themselves and those around them.
Key stats about our people
With employees from a wide variety of ethnic backgrounds, over seven different religions and belief systems, and a diverse gender split, inclusion is at the heart of all we do. Each year we ask our employees to complete a diversity survey; this helps us to understand the make-up of our organisation in more detail. Take a look at our most recent stats.

Blenheim Palace Triathlon 2019
In 2019 a large group of people from across Gateley trained for the Blenheim Triathlon and competed together at this fantastic event. In the previous year, thirty colleagues completed the National Three Peaks, overcoming adverse weather conditions, navigational challenges and very tired bodies to have a lot of fun together in the process. Setting a challenging goal and working hard in order to achieve it is hugely beneficial to wellbeing and we’ve raised thousands of pounds for Mind in the process.
