A problem shared at PD Ports

[ January 6, 2022   //   ]

PD Ports has partnered with Middlesbrough-based charity Recovery Connections to provide wellbeing guidance for its employees nationwide.

A new, dedicated member of staff employed by Recovery Connections will be based on site, primarily at Teesport, as a point of contact for any employees. The collaboration aims to provide a comfortable, safe space to share concerns, gather advice and seek help should anyone at PD Ports, or someone they know, experience problematic substance use issues.

Chief executive Frans Calje, said: “Whilst we are proud of our open and honest culture, we do appreciate that it can be difficult for people to disclose that they are suffering with substance use to their employer. We hope that through our dedicated contact at Recovery Connections, we are able to bridge that gap and ensure our people have access to all the support they might need.”
