UNOX UK gives its growing team a License to Thrive

Published: 19th July 2023

As a long-term support and the first equipment manufacturer ambassador of The Burnt Chef Project, Unox has moved to support and look after its growing team in the UK by investing in a companywide Thrive Mental Well-Being access.

As a leading manufacturer of innovative kitchen equipment, Unox is at the forefront of technological development around the world. Built around sustainability, the company has pledged to do its bit for the long-term health of the industry and the planet, but more than that, Unox is committed to supporting its partners, customers and its dedicated team, now and in the future.

Following a period of sustained growth, the Unox UK team has grown by more than 50%, from 25 to 38 roles since the start of 2023. While this is a testament to the company’s manufacturing capabilities and ongoing support, it has the potential to challenge the overall well-being of the internal team. Recognising this, Unox UK has invested in the Thrive platform for both existing and future employees.

An app-based platform, Thrive is offered in partnership with The Burnt Chef Project, the leading not-for-profit organisation, working to eradicate the stigma around mental health, supporting businesses and individuals working across the industry. Empowering individuals to monitor, support and seek help with their mental health, Thrive helps to develop a greater understanding, build resilience and seek care where needed.

Created in conjunction with the NHS, the app tackles common stressors including sleep, bereavement and work-related issues. It can screen for anxiety and depression, offers users the opportunity to speak directly to clinically trained therapists and delivers personalised data tracking for users.

On the roll-out of the Thrive platform for the Unox UK team, Kris Hall, Founder and CEO at The Burnt Chef Project comments:

“Unox has been a long-term supporter of The Burnt Chef Project – raising thousands of pounds and simultaneously helping us to spread the word about the mental health crisis in the hospitality industry. The roll-out of our Thrive mental well-being app to the company’s expanding UK team demonstrates that Unox doesn’t just talk about supporting those in need but takes clear action to support them too.”

Each member of the Unox UK team has been given their own unique license for the digital platform as well as provided with the information and support to get the most from it going forward. Those joining the company going forward will also be given access to the system as part of the company’s notable list of employee perks.

Emphasising the importance of staff well-being, Scott Duncan, Managing Director of Unox UK adds:

“Sustainability is a key principle of Unox, both here in the UK and around the world. We don’t just see sustainability as doing good for the planet but doing good by our team too. A period of sustained but rapid expansion in our UK business, has seen us face several challenges associated with growth. Committed to preserving the well-being and mental health of our team, we’ve worked with Kris and the team at The Burnt Chef Project to roll out Thrive across our business. Each member of our team now has full 24/7 access to the extensive library of resources, engaging content, mood tracking, screening and confidential therapy support, right from their mobile phone. Ultimately, we believe that not only does Unox have some of the most innovative equipment on the market, but we are also one of the best places to work – something we’re proud of every day.”
