Retail Trust Banner


We are excited to be in partnership with the Retail Trust to support our colleagues. From 1832 onwards, the Retail Trust has been caring for and protecting the lives of people working in retail. They will provide our teams with their very own personalised health and wellbeing hub, packed full of articles, quizzes, videos and advice on everything from mental health and wellbeing to career and lifestyle. This will help them to focus on the things that are important to them.

Here’s what you can expect when you join us…

Mental wellbeing

We’ve worked hard to make sure that everyone in our business has access to the right kind of help, whenever they need it. There’s lots on offer too - from support with mental health, to advice on managing stress, and much more. And when it comes to formal training, we provide Mental Health First Aider courses and mandatory Line Manager Mental Health Awareness training for every team in the UK. We also offer similar resources for our global teams, too.

Financial wellbeing

We understand that sometimes, things don’t go to plan - and even when they do, we could all benefit from some trusted advice. So, we offer all of our colleagues a wide range of assistance when it comes to financial wellbeing - including help with financial emergencies, support with financial education, contributions to financial security, and guidance when it comes to planning for the future.

Physical wellbeing

We’re more committed than ever to looking after the physical health of our people. So wherever you join us, you’ll soon discover our dedication to creating a safe and healthy work environment, and to encouraging everyone to stay active and well.

Emotional wellbeing

Our business is made up of lots of different people, personalities, views, and more - and it’s something that we think makes WHSmith really special. So, we make sure we all have everything we need to focus on our own emotional wellbeing. And it begins with creating an environment that celebrates everyone’s differences - one where we really can be ourselves, and feel like we belong.
