Eclipse Translations seems to be employing some of the healthiest staff around! We are delighted to have achieved the first stage of a three-hear Continuing Excellence Programme, part of the Better Health at Work Award for which we already have Gold status.

Originally Eclipse entered the scheme to embrace health and wellbeing in our company culture, the Continuing Excellence strategy aims to improve overall awareness of major health issues and help staff make informed lifestyle choices.  A recent staff poll showed the majority of us reap the benefits of taking part in regular exercise and feel that the Better Health at Work Award has impacted positively on our health and well-being.

As well as offering staff on-going access to information and advisory services, Eclipse regularly organises healthy events.  In 2014, these included a fundraising day for the British Heart Foundation in February with staff encouraged to dress in red (the charity’s main colour) and sample a range of heart healthy recipes.  Summer saw the always popular Fruity Friday with delicious fresh juices and smoothies available to staff with dress code also inspired by our 5-a-day!  Heading for autumn, we took part in the World’s Biggest coffee Morning with healthy cakes to try and buy on behalf of MacMillan Cancer Support.

Many of our healthy events are co-ordinated by the Eclipse office Administrator, Susan Bathgate, who explains “Better Health at Work has enable Eclipse to create a culture that promotes a healthy approach to life that goes beyond the workplace.  In addition to providing information on health issues, the company has also promoted healthy eating and the benefits of exercise in a fun and engaging way.  this can be evidenced by a number of staff participating in sporting activities outside the workplace and ensures that promoting the health and well being of staff remains important.”

Consequently, Eclipse customers can be assured that its staff are looking forward to 2015 and are full of energy to deal with the thousands of interpreting and translations assignments we receive each year!

RWS received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise award for International Trade – the UK’s highest accolade for business success in recognition of achieving continuous growth and commercial success.
