Current times are hard and suffice to say, many of us are struggling with increased stress, anxiety and depression. The sense of the unknown has very much taken its toll on all of us.
So, now more than ever, we, as employers and managers, need to put a real emphasis on our people’s mental health and wellbeing.
That means looking at the ways we can improve happiness at work, and the ways that we can help to effect happiness outside of work, too.
To help you along the way, we've created a practical checklist. The idea is that you can use this in your workplace to help you identify which areas you’re already taking care of and which areas need a little more attention. And you can refer back to it as often as you need to.
But remember, this isn’t going to be a quick fix. To really make and maintain a mental health positive workplace you and your team need to be constantly monitoring and developing your policies and initiatives. It will always be a work in progress.
And you’re not alone. If you don’t already take a keen focus on mental health and wellbeing it can seem like a mammoth task to start. But it’s never too late! If you need help, or simply our checklist, we’re here for you. Just give us a call or send us an email.
Welcome, never has there been a time when looking after the mental health and wellbeing of you employees has been so important, see our section on health and wellbeing for tips to help you look after your employees.
