Parter Roundtable on Mental Health and Work: Line manager squeeze
Wednesday, 03 September 2014
09:00 - 12:00
The Work Foundation, 21 Palmer Street, London, SW1H 0AD
Following on from our first roundtable on mental health and work in March, three sessions this year were planned by The Work Foundation, developing on some of the emergent themes. The second session has already taken place and focused on mental health and the line manager squeeze, and discussed some of the following questions:
- With multiple pressures on line managers, how can we incentivise and support the people management role?
- How can we embed the importance mental health and wellbeing in line management?
- Should people management be a discipline in itself? How to adapt line manager behaviour to improve messages they give to teams (lead by example)?
- With line managers responsible for managing different generations at work how do we get a differentiated approach to managing mental health? What works best for different groups?
These roundtables are for a small, connected group of partners to come together and share insights, challenges and good practice about managing mental health in the workplace and creating healthy workforces.
