‘As an employer, we have a responsibility to nurture and protect the mental wellbeing of our workforce,’ says Steve Matthews, Managing Director at Highwood. ‘Creating a culture of openness and being ready to support those who we work alongside has never been more important, especially given how the Covid crisis has affected the mental health of so many people.
‘We know how hard it can be to talk about mental health and to identify those at risk, so we’re putting MHFA training and events that encourage everyone to get involved at the forefront of our workplace wellbeing agenda. Judging by the interest our initiatives have received at Highwood, we would encourage other organisations to see how they can adapt their culture to support their teams in similar ways.’
