Partner roundtable: Managing mental health and wellbeing in time of transformation and change
Tuesday, 09 December 2014
09:00 - 12:00
The Work Foundation, 21 Palmer Street, London, SW1H 0AD
The fourth in our series of mental health and work roundtables focused on the management of mental health in times of transition and organisational change. In previous roundtables we have made the case for supporting employee mental health and wellbeing – with rewards not only in terms of employee health, but also in terms of improved engagement and productivity, leading to many organisational benefits, including financial.
A concern for many organisations however is whether they will be able to maintain a focus on employee health and wellbeing, the gains of which will likely be in the longer term and may be less easy to demonstrate, when there is considerable short-term pressure on budgets. This is particularly true during times of transition and organisational change, where jobs may be less secure, and long term plans are unclear. In a climate of uncertainty and competing priorities, how can organisations keep mental health and employee wellbeing on their agenda – particularly when this is the time when employees may be feeling at their most pressured and insecure.
This roundtable was exclusively for partners of The Work Foundation.
