We are really pleased to announce that we have signed the Mental Health in Recruitment Awareness to Action Pledge.
The mental health of our team is very important to us as a business. Previously we’ve shown our commitment by signing the Time to Change Pledge and taking part in several Time to Talk days. However, we are particularly excited to be a part of recruitment specific campaign.
We decided to sign the MHIR pledge as wanted to do something positive for our team and show them that we take mental health seriously.
Using the MHIR roadmap, we plan to change how mental health is viewed, supported and talked about in our workplace. We have already started making some changes and have put together a wellbeing charter to encourage our staff to maintain a healthy work-life balance and have even begun providing resources to help support our team further.
We look forward to making more steps toward positive action and cultural change when addressing mental health in the workplace.
