Communicourt has signed up to the Mental Health at Work Commitment, curated by Mind and supported by The Royal Foundation and Heads Together.
In the UK last year, 41% of employees experienced poor mental health where work was a contributing factor (BITC and Bupa, 2020).
The Commitment demonstrates mental health and wellbeing is a priority for Communicourt. We have already introduced a number of employee benefits including a free, confidential counselling service and GP access.
Operations Manager Heather Jackson is also the Wellbeing Ambassador for Communicourt. She said: “The events of last two years have taken their toll on everyone. I am really excited to take up the role of Wellbeing Ambassador for the organisation, and we are training some of our staff to become mental health first aiders.”
“The Mental Health at Work initiative is so important and we didn’t hesitate to sign up. We challenge mental health stigma through the services we provide, and we want to make sure we are doing all we can for our colleagues as well. We are encouraging open conversations, encouraging and responding to feedback, and working hard to make sure we get our working conditions and work/life balance right for our colleagues.”
