HR Director Dinner: The business response to mental health - London


Time: to

London EC2V

Supported by Eversheds Sutherland this invitation only dinner will share further results of the Mental Health at Work survey and recommendations for business, before opening up the conversation for a round table discussion under Chatham House rules.

Now is the time for employers to do everything they can to support the mental health of their employees. While many have made huge strides in both awareness and action, and employers are increasingly taking an active role in supporting good mental health and wellbeing in the workplace. However, as Business in the Community's third national Mental Health at Work survey demonstrates, the prevalence and impact of mental health issues are severe, and employers need to urgently ramp up the breadth and quality of support they’re providing.
Our research showed that 61% of employees have experienced mental health issues due to work1. A huge opportunity lies within line-manager training - 85% of managers now acknowledge that employee wellbeing is their responsibility, however only 30% have actually received appropriate training2

The evening will include a three course dinner.
