The Event in more detail:
We’ve been speaking to more and more companies about how they support the mental health of their teams. It is a growing area of focus – and rightly so. If you combine our increasingly challenging and relentless world with, more often than not, traditional work processes, the people that take the hit are the employees. As more people reach out for help but with less services and resources available than ever before, we believe that there is both an employer and employee responsibility to resolve the growing issue.
We all have a duty of care to create real change and it’s the clever companies that don’t shy away from this. Indeed, they support their people to remain at their very best. This ensures that they feel secure and cared for and, as a result, engagement and performance remain consistently high. PUSH have huge amounts of experience in supporting mental health in workplaces; teaching teams how to better deal with stress and manage their minds, thus improving their resilience. All of the PUSH team are trained as Mental Health First Aiders; we’ve also recently gone into partnership with Ruby Wax to develop her ‘Frazzled’ mission in the workplace as well as developing a unique mental health programme which, when we ran it for Sainsbury’s, was quoted as ‘outstanding’.
So, we thought it was time to create an event to start the conversation properly and support those companies who are looking to make a real difference. As ever though, our content will have a unique and practical angle: we will consider not only how companies can look after their people but also how we can all better manage ourselves and become the very best that we can be.
