Given that we all spend so much of our lives at work, and work is the place where many of us can experience both stress and success, its clear to see that the workplace is an important area to focus on mental health. At Element Recruitment UK we make sure our employees are supported through all aspects of life. I have been appointed as the 'Mental Health First Aider' within the company, which is a great step forward in our employee care plan.
Having a plan to raise awareness and provide mechanisms for support is crucial so our team members know that they cared for and where they can access support and guidance. I am excited to be part of abolishing the stigma and supporting my hard working colleagues with both their personal and work related stresses.
