Healthy Working Lives

Our Healthy Working Lives journey started in 2010 when we achieved the Bronze Award – the first accountancy firm in Fife, and indeed Scotland, to attain this challenging accolade. A successful initiative to supply fresh fruit in the office prompted the firm to sign up to the programme, run by the Scottish Centre for Healthy Working Lives (www.healthyworkinglives.com).

Following a confidential staff survey, a working group was set up to promote the aims of Healthy Working Lives and to explore the suggestions that were raised from the survey. This has led to campaigns on healthy eating and an active lifestyle, including walking and running groups and the firm’s support in taking part in events like the Edinburgh Marathon.

Healthy Working Lives is seen very much as an ongoing vehicle to promote the health and wellbeing of everyone within the Thomson Cooper team. We've now achieved and maintained Gold standard, the highest level possible. Managing Partner David Walker is a strong advocate of the programme, “We are delighted to be part of the Healthy Working Lives success story. Everyone has shown real enthusiasm for the programme and I’m very proud to see our staff getting involved in various sporting challenges.”
