Portakabin takes a holistic approach to health and wellbeing covering a variety of related topics on both physical and mental health.

Dedicated to maintaining a positive wellbeing culture

With backing from its Chief Executive and team of Directors, Portakabin aims to inspire its employees to take personal responsibility for their health, wellbeing, and safety and to maintain a positive wellbeing culture.

  1. Time to Change Pledge

    In 2019, Portakabin signed the Time to Change Pledge to demonstrate our commitment to ending the discrimination and breaking the silence around mental health issues in the workplace. We will be working in partnership with the Time to Change team to deliver our mental health action plan.

  2. Mindful Employer

    Portakabin has signed the Charter for Employers who are Positive about Mental Health. The Charter is one element of the MINDFUL EMPLOYER® initiative which is aimed at increasing awareness of mental health in the workplace and is a voluntary agreement seeking to support employers in working within the spirit of its positive approach. MINDFUL EMPLOYER is a UK-wide initiative run by Workways, part of Devon Partnership NHS Trust.

  3. Suicide prevention training

    Portakabin takes a proactive approach to suicide prevention and aims to create a suicide safer workplace community as part of our mental health plans. To date, Portakabin has trained 203 employees in LivingWork’s safeTALK suicide alertness training as well as training key people in the business on suicide intervention.

  4. Resilience workshops

    Portakabin recognises that stress and pressure, both in and out of work, are a normal part of everyday life. To better equip employees to deal with the sometimes negative effects that this can bring Portakabin have trained over 90% of their employees in resilience, equipping them with tools and techniques to better manage stress and prevent it from occurring when possible. Since 2016, 1,326 Portakabin colleagues have received training and support in resilience.

  5. Mental health first aid (MHFA)

    Portakabin is setting up a network of Wellbeing Champions. These champions will support the organisation’s health and wellbeing vision and will take on the role of Mental Health First Aiders, providing initial support to individuals experiencing mental health issues and signposting them to further professional help. This is a significant step for Portakabin in support of its zero harm approach and giving mental health the same level of importance as physical health.

  6. Health awareness campaigns

    Portakabin participates in a variety of physical and mental health awareness campaigns throughout the year. Through awareness campaigns Portakabin aims to provide information to employees on specific health topics, options for support services, and engaging e-learning modules and workshops.
