The Mental Health at Work Commitment, curated by Mind, provides a simple framework for employers who recognise the importance of staff wellbeing. SA Group signed the commitment, demonstrating their ambition to develop a workplace environment and culture where all employees can thrive.
This framework sets out six clear standards based on best practice and is designed to better equip employers, creating an environment where employees can thrive. It has been developed with the knowledge and expertise of mental health charities, leading employers, and trade organisations.
“Mental health in the workplace has never been more important, and the wellbeing of employees is one of the highest priorities at SA Group, so we’re pleased to sign this commitment and join this community.”Jeremy Osborne, HR Director at SA Group
Andrew Berrie, Mental Health at Work National Lead said: “We’re delighted to see SA Group sign the Mental Health at Work Commitment. By embedding our six standards in the way they operate, SA Group are demonstrating a real commitment to supporting the mental health of those in their workplace.”
“We know it can be hard to talk about mental health and seek support, which is why public commitments such as this one are so important. With issues like stress, anxiety and depression common across all employers, regardless of size or sector, we want to see every employer recognise and address any work related causes of poor mental health among their staff and it’s fantastic to see organisations like SA Group taking the lead.”
