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.

About Our Wellbeing Champions

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.

  • The Charity Stand Down Hour works on the premise of each member of staff donating just one hour of their salary to EIC. It is facilitated completely through your payroll and will be automatically deducted as a one-off donation annually.
  • EIC Day is a fundraising day which can be implemented across all branches with the aim of each employee fundraising or donating just £10 to EIC. EIC Day can happen in the form of a trivia night, a dress-down day, a bake sale or a fancy-dress day.

  • Our industry has a lottery that funds the health and well- being services of the Electrical Industry. To implement the workplace lottery staff are given access to a portal to register and a payroll contact is delivered a deduction report for the monthly payroll.  For as little as £1 per month staff could win up to £1,000 or £500 a month with 40 cash prizes plus a mega prize draw of £10,000 to be won twice a year in June and December.
