🧠 Mental Health in the Workplace: How can we support employees 🧠

We all have mental health just as we have physical health – it moves up and down along a spectrum from good to poor. And considering how much time we spend at work, it’s not surprising that workplace environments and culture affect our wellbeing.

Smart employers know that organisations perform better when staff are healthy, motivated and focused. Research consistently shows that when employees feel their work is meaningful and they are valued and supported, they tend to have higher wellbeing levels, be more committed to the organisation’s goals and, importantly, they perform better too. This strong relationship between levels of staff wellbeing and motivation and business performance is often called ‘employee engagement’.

Our December masterclass will be looking at:
✅ Promoting wellbeing at work
✅ Tackling the causes of mental health problems
✅ Top Tips

This masterclass is free to join so sign up and invite your colleagues along too.
