As a business we recognise the huge part that mental health plays in our lives and the importance of looking after our own whatever shape that may take. Having considered our own approach to mental wellbeing and how we can best look after our people both in the office and across our sites, we have partnered with mental health Charity, Mates in Mind.
Mates in Mind are a leading UK Charity that enables organisations to improve their people’s mental health. Having seen the alarming levels of mental illness across the construction industry, the charity set out to deliver effective change across the construction industry and related industries through providing skills, clarity and training giving businesses the confidence to support their teams. The charity will be supporting us through workshops, assessments, training and resources.
As well as widen the conversation around mental health we want to build upon the mental health culture of our workplace. This means creating safe spaces in which colleagues, if they wish to, can openly talk about their mental health and ask questions. It means providing our teams with the knowledge and training on leading the conversation around mental health. It considers our wellbeing and how best we can look after it whether that’s through physical exercise, yoga and mediation or a balanced diet. But what it also means is enhancing our support offering through both Mates in Mind and our Employee Assistance programme.
