Caroline Connelly, 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.”
Faye McGuinness, Head of Workplace Wellbeing Programmes at Mind, said: “We are delighted to be the Charity Partner for the Workplace Wellbeing Show. Poor mental health is now the number one reason for staff absence so it is vital organisations make the wellbeing of their staff a priority. Smart workplaces are recognising the value of prioritising workplace wellbeing, and as a result, seeing happier, more engaged and productive staff who are less likely to need to take time off sick.”
