Heart Research UK award DS Smith Clay Cross with silver Healthy Heart Mark

We're pleased to award DS Smith's Clay Cross site a silver Healthy Heart Mark.

Our prestigious Healthy Heart Mark is awarded to companies who make a positive contribution towards employee health and wellbeing.

Staff at Clay Cross, Derbyshire, have seen management introduce a wide-range of physical activities and heart health initiatives, including bringing in weekly healthy breakfasts and soups, email-free Wednesdays, Pilate classes, stress-management workshops, and smoking segregation areas, whilst raising awareness on the effect smoking has on the body.

Mike Introna, Managing Director at DS Smith’s Clay Cross site, said: “We’re very proud to have been awarded the silver Healthy Heart Mark. It’s been fantastic to see our employees responding enthusiastically to the initiatives and it’s encouraging to see what can be achieved. The programme has kick-started a culture-shift within the company, and is inspiring everyone to pay closer attention to their general health.

“Looking after our people is a core value of our business. Heart Research UK’s Healthy Heart Mark has given us a chance to give back to our employees and help them towards a healthier way of living.”
