Our people are our most valuable asset. Our culture and success are built upon the individual differences, knowledge and unique talents that our employees bring to the workplace. We recognize that the physical and mental well-being of our workforce influences many business success factors, including employee retention, innovation and collaboration.
That is why we are committed to helping our employees create a proper work-life balance and feel recognized and valued at work. In 2022, our facilities around the world implemented several initiatives to emphasize the importance of self-care and care for others.
Other activities that support employee well-being include family days, cook-out events and health fairs to communicate employee appreciation and boost engagement.
Our Wantage, U.K. site held the Company’s first Mental Health & Well-being Day. Organized by the site’s Mental Health Working Group, which was established in the aftermath of the COVID-19 lockdowns, the event addressed topics such as healthy eating, weight management, anxiety and depression, financial wellness and more. The new team includes Mental Health First Aiders, a group of Crown peers trained to offer confidential advice and access to resources for employees who may be struggling with their mental health. Year-round activities organized by the team include webinars, mental health awareness talks for managers and employees, increasing awareness for the Company’s Employee Assistance Program, and collating and publishing mental health resources on our Intranet.

In Custines, France, a family day was built around fairground attractions, and the team also utilized the opportunity to communicate about metal packaging recycling. A specially designed aluminum can with an augmented reality experience was featured to make recycling fun and engaging for attendees.
