Ben has launched its latest Industry Survey to ask the automotive community about the biggest health and wellbeing challenges they face.
The survey has been designed to ensure the charity can continue offering the right support to those in need.
This will be the third year that Ben has run its survey and feedback will allow the charity to ensure its health and wellbeing services remain relevant to those working in the industry now and in the future. This, in turn, will help more people deal with life’s challenges, supporting them to get their lives back on track.
Ben has urged automotive industry employees to take part in its survey, which asks them about a range of health and wellbeing issues. The survey is for anyone who works, or has worked, in the automotive industry. Ben has also asked automotive industry employers to share the survey link with their employees – so the charity can best support them in the future.
The results from last year’s survey found:
- 91% of employees had been affected by a health & wellbeing issue in the last year
- 64% of employees said poor sleep was affecting their health & wellbeing
Following the results of previous surveys, Ben has been developing its services to offer people more choice in how they receive support, for their mental health in particular. Ben has also developed online support and advice to help people improve their sleep, which has been viewed 4,400 times since launching in May 2019.
The content on its website has looked at key issues that can affect sleep, in particular stress, given that 57% of people told Ben they have been experiencing stress at work. Ben has also been working with employers to deliver workplace sessions on ‘Coping with stress and pressure’.
Whether a person works on the shop floor or top floor, in a factory, garage, office, showroom or on the road, if they work (or have worked) in the automotive industry, Ben is here for them and welcomes their input.
By clicking the link, participants agree to take part in the survey which takes less than 10 minutes to complete and tells Ben about the health and wellbeing issues that are most important to them. The survey is confidential and anonymous so participants don’t need to reveal their name or contact details.
By obtaining this vital input from industry employees, Ben will be able to continue to tailor its health and wellbeing services to best meet their needs and address the challenges they face.
Rachel Clift, Health & Wellbeing Director at Ben, said: “We are listening to the people who work in the automotive industry and we would like to encourage all employees to take part in our Industry Survey 2019. We’re also encouraging automotive employers to share the survey link with their employees. This is the third year that we have run the survey, which has proven to be hugely beneficial in helping us understand the biggest issues affecting the automotive community today.
“We really do listen to automotive industry people – the insights revealed from each annual survey are vital and we need to continue gathering them so we offer the relevant health and wellbeing support now and in the future. Thank you to everyone who takes part in this survey, we really appreciate your time and feedback.”
