New break room facilities at Derby site
13 November 2023
Investing in our people is just as important as investing in new injection moulding machines.
High-quality welfare facilities in the workplace matter
The work we do at TEX Plastics is demanding, as it is in any manufacturing environment. Which is why we wanted to make sure that when operatives had a break, they had a nice space to eat, drink and relax. Welfare facilities are necessary to protect the health and safety of employees in the workplace. Health and safety is a key concern, and unlike other work places, it's not practical or safe for people to eat or drink on the go. Breaks are scheduled and because of the concentration levels needed for our machine operatives, logistics personnel and managers, we need them to have the right environment to get the full benefit from this downtime.
Allowing our people to work to the best of their capabilities
A good quality welfare environment can also contribute to a more positive and productive working environment, which can benefit both employees and employers. There is a lot of research that posts out how it can help to reduce stress and promote mental well-being, which can lead to improved employee morale and engagement.
