Approach to Mental Health

Our mental health training is part of the firm’s wider wellbeing strategy, with the formation of our ‘Wellbeing Champions

In January 2022,  we trained and added three additional certified Mental Health First Aiders (MHFA) to the team, giving the firm a strong and committed team of twelve MHFAs.

Our Wellbeing Champions have big plans in place for events and activities throughout the year and will be encouraging colleagues to get involved along the way.

We actively welcome and promote national campaigns, such as, Time to Talk Day, Stress Awareness Month, National Walking Month and Mental Health Awareness Week. The firm not only promote these national campaigns, but utilises their aims to raise awareness to our employees about the support and resources they have available to them.

We readily seek feedback from our employees on our health and wellbeing strategies and initiatives.

We undertake an annual wellbeing survey, which helps us to identify areas of improvement. Comparing year on year responses we analyse any trends which may be occurring, which in turn enables the firm to target areas to improve on.

We believe our health and wellbeing programmes resources and surveys help to enable a happier workforce and thus continue to provide our second to none customer service to our clients.
