Charlotte Geoghegan, Head of Content for Workplace Wellbeing Show, said: “We are honoured to work with Mind to form a Charity Partnership for Workplace Wellbeing Show. Over the last seven decades, Mind has led the de-stigmatisation of mental health. Our programme at Workplace Wellbeing Show is designed to represent the multi-faceted nature of occupational wellbeing. This partnership with Mind underscores the importance of mental health within this, and a commitment to raising the profile of mental health in the workplace.”
Emma Mamo, Head of Workplace Wellbeing at Mind, said: “The coronavirus pandemic has had a huge impact on the UK workforce, so there’s never been a more crucial time to promote and protect the wellbeing and mental health of staff. That is why we are delighted to be the Charity Partner for the Workplace Wellbeing Show. As the Government’s lockdown measures begin to relax, and many people return to their usual workplaces, they might need to re-adjust, which could be a challenge – investing in workplace wellbeing measures in the short and longer-term is vital. Those employers who do recognise the value of prioritising workplace wellbeing also find that it can result in a happier, more engaged and productive workforce, who are less likely to need to take time off sick.”
Workplace Wellbeing Show, together with Safety & Health Expo and SHP, is designed to inspire and inform workplace wellbeing professionals by connecting this growing community to the expertise, guidance, policy and solutions that will shape the mental health and wellbeing landscape.
