So it stands to reason we are transparent about the treatment of our own – those who partner with us to deliver our highly valued service.
Ethics, fairness and a humane approach to partnering with our practitioners are words on a page without an independent review.
So we decided to approach GoodWell to have them determine how well (or otherwise) we treat our practitioners. And we’re super proud to say ..
Seated Massage has successfully achieved GoodWell certification for fair, equitable, and humane workplace practices.
GoodWell’s certification method uses 11 metrics to determine if an organisation is healthy and sustainable.
The process gives leaders an objective view of their practices as an employer and an opportunity to demonstrate their values to employees and the community at large.
GoodWell founder and CEO Pete Gombert says .. “Employers are looking for a valid way beyond lip service to demonstrate they are positive, empowering places to work.”
“GoodWell certification provides this in a quantifiable, transparent way and helps turn workplaces into a powerful advantage for attracting and retaining talented employees.”
We’re an early adopter of the GoodWell certification and we hope to be an influence on others in business, particularly in our industry and in the gig economy.
We didn’t have to do this. Our practitioner partners are not employees of Seated Massage. We chose to have highlighted, the fact that any worker, full or part time, contract or gig, can not only be treated equitably, but feel like they are part of an extended family.
We recommend GoodWell to any business who puts their people first.
