Organisations like yours can support the Electrical Industries Charity and the colleagues we help every year by joining forces with the EIC. There are two big ways you can support the EIC by becoming an EIC Wellbeing Champion or partnering with the EIC through a Commercial Agreement (CA).
An EIC Wellbeing Champion Business promotes positive wellbeing within their organisation and aims to support employees the best they can. To help champion businesses achieve this the EIC offer all our EIC Champion Businesses access to tailor made resources and wellbeing presentations as well as extended access to the EAP provided by the EIC.
A Commerical Agreement partner means your organisation fundraises for the Charity through the sale of certain products or services. As a CA partner your product line directly donates to our sector colleagues in need and by joining the CA you receive a bespoke marketing campaign advertising our partnership across multimedia and events.
Our Wellbeing Champions recognise the overwhelming need for support in our industry. They strive to ensure the Charity remains, relevant, accessible, and thought provoking. Our champions help to shape our work within the industry by sharing their experiences and needs. As well as being ambassadors for the Charity within the sector. The EIC champions programme focuses on our six core values and how we can grow our presences and better our support in the industry. These were set out for us by our 10-founding electrical and energy industry members in 1905.
To keep our free and confidential services available to the industry we rely on organisations and individuals, such as yourselves to help the Charity in many ways. This could be financially through participating in and promoting fundraising initiatives across the sector. It could be through championing the Charity in the sector as an ambassador, ensuring a wide presence in all industries. It may also be through implementing and driving best practices for our industry and members such as mental health awareness and an industry EAP programme.
Our Wellbeing Champions programme is open to anyone who is working or has worked within the electrical and energy sector, along with all companies large and small within the industries. We are a Charity created by industry members to serve industry members. This programme has been designed to give all industry members the opportunity to shape their Charity to suit the changing industry needs. As well as providing the Charity with many more ambassador voices within the sector.
