Reach out, listen and act – How to improve the mental health of your employees
April is National Stress Awareness month and so far the year has been a hugely busy one for all employers, with the likes of Brexit and now the dreadful the Coronavirus.
If you haven’t had time to plan, here are a few tips to help.
Feedback and future
This month is a great time to gather feedback from colleagues and based on their responses design a brilliant mental health/resilience campaign to launch in a few months time.
Ask questions such as:
- In the new world we will all live in, what could we do more of to create a positive place to work where you and your colleagues feel valued and supported?
- Do you know who to talk to and where to go when you need support?
- What more/different support could we offer you to help you be mentally strong?
- What can we do better to create enough opportunities to discuss any emerging issues, problems or pressures you and your colleagues may be feeling?
Listening is really powerful and the insight will help you design a brilliant campaign so use this month to gather feedback, listen and plan for the future.
We’re designing and delivering lots impactful programmes to improve mental health and reduce stress levels.
