    Staff wellbeing at top of Gestamp’s agenda

    The wellbeing of staff is at the top of the agenda for Newton Aycliffe’s biggest employer.

    Automotive manufacturer Gestamp has taken on a full-time wellbeing lead at its huge Aycliffe Business Park site, while the firm has trained up 25 mental health first aiders.

    Gestamp – a multinational company which specialises in the design, development and manufacture of highly engineered metal components for the automotive industry – is also embracing a range of national and local mental health awareness campaigns, encouraging employees to take part.

    It’s part of Gestamp’s health and wellbeing vision for the company and its 1,000-plus workforce, as the company prepares to invest in a bespoke ‘R&R’ wellbeing zone within a new state-of-the-art training and development facility.
