Stakehill BID collaborates with Your Trust to promote employee health

Date published: 13 November 2023

Stakehill Business Improvement District (BID) has collaborated with Your Trust, which operates leisure and culture venues across the Rochdale borough, to offer free blood pressure checks for staff working on Stakehill Industrial Estate.

Stakehill BID covers the estate at Stakehill, and employees from companies including Ceva Logistics, Howard Tenens, Domu brands, D. Turners & Sons, Mid Communications and Tontarelli, took advantage of the opportunity, resulting in 126 staff members being checked.

The collaboration between Stakehill BID and Yourtrust aimed to have a positive impact on the overall health of employees, as blood pressure check ups can help prevent serious health issues.

Alan Johnson, Stakehill BID manager, said: “The event encouraged individuals to take proactive steps towards improving their overall health and a healthy workforce is a productive workforce. As a BID, we’re committed to creating a supportive environment within Stakehill.”

Your Trust is a charity that aims to make it easy and appealing for residents to get active, be creative, and feel healthier. Elaine Stott, Active Living Lead at Your Trust, said: “We are to have partnered with Stakehill BID to provide this crucial service to employees and emphasise the importance of regular blood pressure checks.”

UBS is the majority owner of Stakehill Industrial Estate. Since its purchase UBS and Canmoor Asset Management have undertaken a series of initiatives to improve the estate. These include full unit refurbishments when units became vacant, landscaping works and additional signage and CCTV installations. These positive initiatives have helped in securing new occupiers while also retaining existing tenants as well.
