Ben is highlighting how its Coaching Service for those who work or have worked in the automotive industry can support individuals to progress in their careers, boost their confidence and improve their lifestyle, including eating habits, self-care and work-life balance. Ben’s qualified coaches work with individuals to identify areas of their lives they would like to improve, set goals and achieve them.

All funds raised from these events enable Ben to continue to provide vital, life-changing support for our automotive family when they are struggling or in crisis.

Rachel Clift, Health & Wellbeing Director at Ben, said:

“January tends to be a time for self-reflection. We hear a lot about resolutions and setting goals which can be difficult to achieve on your own – so let Ben help you! People can sometimes feel stuck in their personal lives and in their career, but that’s why our coaching service is so valuable – our coaches help you work out what you want in life and how to move towards or achieve this. They help give individuals the vision and the motivation they need to make positive, lasting changes.

We also have some fantastic and fun events happening this year which might tick the box for many of our automotive family in terms of giving back, increasing physical activity levels and enhancing overall wellbeing.”
