Webinar: Mental health & wellbeing and looking after remote workers

Insights from Mind’s 2018/19 Workplace Wellbeing Index, an update on workplace health & wellbeing and some considerations for working remotely, including the affect a period of self-isolation can have on individuals and managers, were the focus of this webinar.

SHP recently hosted a webinar which looked at health & wellbeing in the workplace. With many employers advising staff work from home during the coronavirus outbreak, it also featured how period of self-isolation or prolonged time working from home can affect health & wellbeing and require a different approach from managers.

Topics covered:

  • Mental Health at Work – the current picture across the UK;
  • Insights from Mind’s 2018/19 Workplace Wellbeing Index;
  • ROI: The ‘low hanging fruit’ versus organisation culture change;
  • Practical steps employers can take: The Mental Health at Work Commitment;
  • Wellbeing of remote workers: A period of self-isolation or prolonged time working from home can affect health & wellbeing and require a different approach from managers. Here are some considerations for both individuals and their managers.

The panel:

Faye McGuinness, Head of Workplace Wellbeing Programmes, Mind

Faye McGuinnessFaye joined Mind in 2015 to lead on the development and implementation of a Cabinet funded programme to address the mental health of emergency services employees. The Blue Light Programme ran for four years, delivering a range of interventions to staff and volunteers from ambulance, fire, police and search and rescue services across England and Wales.

Now, as Head of Workplace Wellbeing Programmes, Faye not only leads on the strategy and development of Mind’s Workplace Wellbeing programmes but leads on one of their biggest employee mental health programmes to date.

Faye heads up the Heads Together Workplace Wellbeing programme at Mind, with funding from The Royal Foundation, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry. This iconic programme looks to provide employers with easy access to best practice employee mental health resources and to empower employees with the tools they need to support themselves in the workplace.

Faye also leads on Mind’s response to the Stevenson-Farmer review of mental health and employers ‘Thriving at Work’, supporting employers to adopt the Mental Health at Work Commitment and coordinating the Thriving at Work Leadership Council.

Hi, the calendar configuration from your invitation was wrongly setup: it was added to my calendar at 12.00 instead of 10.00 am (Spanish time), so I could not attend the webinar.
Could you please send me a link with the recording, if there is any?
Thanks,
Teresa

I registered for the webinar but probably like many others I could not get in. Has it been recorded and will it be available through another media after the event? I take it it that it was oversubscribed because of the subject matter
