Vashti Holland

As the National Wellbeing Lead at Guide Dogs, Vashti’s passion and commitment to creating a culture of health and wellbeing is reflected through the implementation, development and engagement of their People and Wellbeing Strategy (PaWS).

Vashti’s been instrumental in maintaining energy, focus, accountability and commitment across the organisation, establishing a National Wellbeing Team, launching Regional Wellbeing Teams, securing sponsorship from senior leaders and establishing a successful Wellbeing Buddy programme, to offer listening support for staff.

Creating a culture where everyone brings their whole self to work, and speaks openly about health and wellbeing, ensures that Guide Dogs is a great place to be. Vashti’s currently studying an MSc in Workplace Health & Wellbeing to support her role and recently sat on a panel of Judges for the This Can Happen Workplace Wellbeing Awards.
