Why is looking after the mental health of employees so important?
Employees are facing a range of challenges in the wake of Covid-19 and this has unfortunately impacted dramatically on their mental health. Looking after your employees mental health is important now more than ever.
Research has shown that employees are driven by their psychological wellbeing and that it is the main motivator for positive engagement in work.
If an organisation looks after the wellbeing of their employees, staff are likely to be more motivated and focused, therefore performing better.
Research has also shown that organisations with good wellbeing programmes out-perform their market competitors and are likely to be more successful. Looking after the wellbeing of your employees can therefore be a financial investment for your company as well as vital for the health of your staff.

If any staff members feel that
they need further support following the workshops or feel uncomfortable in group sessions, then we can offer individual sessions. These
