Wellbeing

There will always be tight schedules, deadlines to hit and multiple demands on everyone’s time – and so we strive to keep our people happy and healthy to meet those challenges. We have an imaginative and varied programme which includes; providing fruit, a wide variety of teas and coffees, breakfast cereals, organising mindfulness classes, fitness taster sessions, and desk-based massage. We work with local, independent suppliers to nourish our minds as well as our bodies.

We are proud to have been named one of Broadcast’s Top Places to Work in TV for the last three years and have been a member of the Workplace Wellbeing Charter since 2015.
