As an employer, you know you have a legal responsibility to manage health and safety in the workplace, but so many of us focus on our employee’s physical health, forgetting to include mental health and wellbeing. Mental health risks need to be managed by us, just as we do for any other health and safety risk.
Aside from just meeting your legal obligations, your business can benefit significantly from increasing your employee’s mental wellbeing. Businesses that invest in building and maintaining good mental wellbeing report higher productivity and sales, more creativity and improved customer satisfaction, with the business building a reputation and becoming known as a great place to work, making recruitment and retention so much easier.
This workshop will give you clarity on:
- What ‘mental health and safety’ means
- Your legal responsibilities as an employer to manage this
- Tips for managing this; from preventing discrimination to reducing workplace stress and preventing psychological harm, having on-site mental health first aiders and the benefits of incorporating mindfulness into the workplace
- Ways you can organise the workplace to support employee’s experiencing mental distress, such as flexible working arrangements
This is a practical and interactive session with likeminded leaders, managers and business owners, where you’ll have the opportunity to take learnings straight back to the workplace.
