Aston & James Campaign of the Year category entry

The Aston & James mobile well-being pop-up was launched in October 2021 as practical and visual support that shows our commitment to helping employers support their employees wherever they work. Continuing to promote and support the long-term health of people at work, whilst encouraging overall staff well-being for a positive, high-performing, and engaged workforce. This helped us to remain, visible, relevant, and aligned with the importance and consideration for well-being in the workplace.

Through this campaign, we have been able to support our customers in reassessing their workspace or workplace, wherever they choose to work. Opening a positive change conversation where the need arises. Encouraging them to add more movement into their working day.

Supporting them to be…
Fit for Work
Fit for Purpose
Fit for Life

Through this campaign, we have continued to listen and implement relevant and suitable solutions that meet the demand of our end users. We have supported multiple home workers and helped re-think, refresh and improve office environments to engage and encourage employees to return to their workplace and get something more from it. Ultimately seeing a return and uplift in other areas of customer requirements. The feedback from our customers has been amazing.

Darren Aston, MD said, “It is fantastic to be shortlisted alongside such prestigious names, we are very proud of our Workplace Well-being campaign, raising awareness of the issues that help to create a happier, healthier and more productive environment. The work we do is very rewarding, but it is also very humbling to see that work acknowledged with a shortlisting for the Boss Awards.”

The shortlist of companies for the Campaign of the Year Award are:

3M
Antalis UK
Aston & James
Nemo Office Club
Pukka Pads 2000 Ltd

For the industry celebration of the year

Whatever the outcome, Aston & James will be celebrating when the winners are announced at The BOSS Awards 2022. The awards will take place at the Kimpton Clocktower in Manchester on 24th November.
