Mindspace 247 are proud to announce the launch of their first Workplace Wellbeing Awards, celebrating the best employers for supporting mental health and wellbeing within the workplace.
According to the Mental Health Foundation 1 in 6.8 people are experiencing mental health problems in the workplace and research shows that 12.7% of all sickness absence days in the UK can be attributed to mental health conditions. It is also estimated that better mental health support within the workplace could save UK Businesses up to £8 billion per year.
“Now is the time to highlight the great employers in the UK who understand and value the importance of promoting strong mental health in their workplace” – Guy Outram, Co-founder MindSpace 247
The awards provide a wonderful opportunity to highlight the amazing steps employers have taken to support and improve the mental health and emotional wellbeing of their employees, ultimately working towards removing the stigma of discussing issues surrounding mental health in the workplace.
Voting for stage one of the MindSpace 247 Workplace Wellbeing Awards will be split into two categories and will close Monday 6th December 2021:
- Best Workplace Mental Health & Wellbeing Initiative
- Best Mental Wellbeing Engagement Strategy
Over the next 12 months, we will be shining a spotlight on those organisations who have made a positive impact on mental health and wellbeing within their organisation by promoting the importance of daily “self-maintenance” and offering their employees access to self-help tools such as wellbeing apps, services and instant counselling.
We will be concluding our celebration of workplace wellbeing initiatives with a formal ceremony in November 2022, where we will be showcasing the top 5 employers showing excellence in supporting workplace mental health and career support.
