Happy and healthy employees are the backbone of any organisation. Yet all too often, mental health can be overlooked or brushed under the table, leading to absenteeism, decreased productivity, high staff turnover, and low employee engagement and morale.
Taking care of your employees’ mental health doesn’t just help your business be a great place to work. It’s also a legal responsibility; the Equality Act 2010 says that reasonable adjustments must be made and monitored for those employees experiencing mental ill health.
In partnership with MSBHelp.co.uk (Mental Health in Business Solutions), LEAD is offering one lucky reader the opportunity to win a package of services that will help their organisation set excellent mental health procedures that will both support their staff and maintain their legal responsibilities under the Equality Act 2010.
One winner will receive membership to MSBHelp.co.uk, which includes:
- Access to the Level 1 Mental Health Awareness Course*. This is a CPD-accredited training course to improve mental health awareness in the workplace. Certificates will be provided to participants who complete the course.
- Regular legal updates to help companies maintain their legal responsibilities and keep up-to-date with the Equality Act 2010
- Posters to place around the workplace, notifying employees of the mental health support available to them
- Discounts on sessions at the MSBHelp.co.uk online counselling clinic, the only NHS Choices approved online clinic. These sessions can be made available to your staff as and when they need them.
- Access to an administration where they can monitor their employee’s progress on the course
- A membership certificate to hang in reception to let all your staff and customers know that mental health matters to your business
* The number of places available on the course is subject to the size of the company. Please see terms and conditions for further information.
