Dedicated mental health work structure

Autoelectro remains steadfast in its dedication to providing comprehensive mental health support and a structure, one that promotes open communication and generates a supportive work environment – below are examples:

Effective communication: Autoelectro prioritises clear and transparent communication; it encourages and has built an environment where employees feel comfortable to voice their thoughts, concerns, or challenges without fear of judgment. This approach cultivates a workplace culture where every individual feels valued and supported.

Work-life balance: Autoelectro understands the significance of maintaining a healthy work-life balance. The remanufacturer believes in leaving work-related matters at the office. With reasonable working hours scheduled from Monday to Friday and a strict no-weekend policy, it ensures employees have ample time to unwind and enjoy their weekends.

Preventing burnout: Autoelectro actively advocates for breaks during the workday to prevent burnout and alleviate stress. Recognising the importance of mental well-being, it emphasises the health and wellness of its workforce by encouraging ‘me time’.

Counselling support and resources: Autoelectro is also committed to supporting its employees by providing access to counselling services and resources to address both personal and work-related challenges. Its commitment to employee welfare is demonstrated through initiatives aimed at offering professional assistance whenever needed. The company encourages its staff to utilise the employee assistance support to address any mental health concerns, irrespective of them stemming from personal or work-related issues.
