While the long-term economic consequences of COVID-19 play out, businesses can help safeguard their future by nurturing a resilient workforce.
Support is now available for businesses across Kent with the Kent and Medway Healthy Workplace award programme.
So far 16,000 employees have benefited from the scheme, which is run by Medway Council. National Grid is located on the Isle of Grain and holds a Platinum Workplace Wellbeing Award. Stuart Clack, their wellbeing lead commented: “We have received mental health training which has been a great benefit to the site of Grain. The local award has helped us to see what we are already doing and give us new areas to focus on.”
The Kent and Medway Healthy Workplace programme will help you make your workforce healthier, happier and more productive. It can help you address crucial issues like recruitment and staff retention, sickness absence and productivity and help you to make a positive change in your workplace environment and attitudes. To celebrate the launch of the Healthy Workplace programme Kent wide we are hosting a free, online event from 1.30 to 2.30 pm on October 15th, Supporting mental health in the workplace.
