Inside Admiral

Admiral’s Ministry of Health

One of our key commitments is “Our People” and, in order to create a good working environment for them, we have a strong culture based on four pillars: Communication, Equality, Reward & Recognition, and Fun.

Our Ministry of Health is part of this culture and one of the ways in which we reward our staff members. The Ministry of Health (MOH) focuses on providing support and help to staff in living a healthy lifestyle.

“When we originally set up Admiral, one of our aims was to create a company that offers its staff a good work-life balance. Twenty five years later, and this wish still remains as strong as ever. It’s important to ensure people have a work environment that’s as stress free and supportive as possible for them. The Ministry of Health is a great way of promoting our commitment to supporting our staff in living a healthy and well balanced lifestyle.” (David Stevens, CEO)

Some of our key rewards, such as the free gym and free fruit, fall within the Ministry of Health. The MOH also organizes events throughout the year, such as dry January, health road shows, cancer checks, National No Smoking day, diabetes awareness, as well as events more focussed on mental health, such as our Healthy Heads campaign and Time to Talk day. If you work here already, or are joining us soon, we have smoking cessation clinics and breast cancer checks coming up in April. You can find our MOH calendar on Atlas (our intranet).

The MOH also offers staff a discounted rate on Tara’s 21 day challenge, which offers tailored nutrition and fitness plans, and runs Office OM, yoga, and sports massages.

Thanks to the great efforts of our MOH team, which is run voluntarily by several staff members, we won Gold in the Corporate Health Standard, which is run by the Welsh Government, in February this year.

Independent assessor Emma George, who visited Admiral’s headquarters in Cardiff, commented “Admiral Group is an organisation with its people at its core, and the commitment to and investment in the wellbeing of staff is sector leading. This was a fantastic revalidation assessment - Admiral is a truly inspirational workplace.”

We are very proud of our Ministry of Health and always welcome feedback and suggestions from staff members, so that we can continue to help them live a healthy, stress-free lifestyle.
