For most of us, work is a big part of our lives, a place where we spend the majority of our time. So it’s important that, as a company, we look after our employees and as well as physical health, that means mental health, too.
Since 2019, a key focus for us has been creating a culture where people feel comfortable speaking about mental health and seeking help when they need it.
To that end, we created a Mental Health Strategy and delivered on a range of initiatives.
We created and implemented a Mental Health Policy, and gave managers the right tools to speak to their teams about mental health
We incorporated mental wellbeing into quarterly catch-ups between managers and employees to aid conversations around mental health
We ran a Time to Talk Afternoon tea day, to start a conversation about mental health and remove the stigma around it
We rolled out Mental Health Workshops for all members of staff: one-day training courses designed to remove some of the stigma around mental health issues, and to help everyone to talk about the issues openly and in a supportive environment.
