10 October 2018
In line with World Mental Health day, 10th October 2018, BMT is focusing its attention on the mental health and wellbeing of staff. We believe that this important topic impacts everyone.
We are committed to raising awareness of mental health, removing the stigma and improving the quality of life for our employees. As a company, we have signed the ‘Time To Change’ pledge in demonstration of the commitment to improving the way in which we think and act about mental health in the workplace. In the following video, members of our executive committee explain why this is so important.
As an Employee Benefit Trust, we truly value the wellbeing of all our staff, demonstrated through the recent launch of our global wellbeing strategy that seeks to improve physical, financial and mental health. We believe that mental health impacts everyone. By signing the Time To Change pledge we are showing our commitment to raising awareness of mental health, removing its stigma and improving the quality of life for our employees. We actively promote mental health awareness across our business. We provide individuals with information to better manage their mental health, identify who they can to talk to when in need and enable line managers to offer appropriate support to their teams. We now seek to create a culture where there is no stigma around mental health issues. Signing the pledge is the catalyst for this.
