Supporting mental health and wellbeing at work
Friday 13 May marks the end of Mental Health Awareness week, an annual event hosted by the Mental Health Foundation that promotes the importance of understanding, protecting and sustaining mental health and wellbeing.
With around one in seven people experiencing mental health problems in the workplace*, Stonehage Fleming recognises the need to support its people, creating an inclusive environment that is free of stigma.
This year the firm ran its first ‘Wellness Week’ – a global event to promote open conversations around mental health and offer practical tips for improving workplace wellbeing. Colleagues from across our international offices were challenged to drink more water, eat well, be mindful, increase their steps, spend time pursuing their hobbies and connecting with others.
Commenting on the week, CEO Chris Merry, said: “Wellbeing for all of our people is a key objective for 2022/23. I hope that everyone enjoyed our first Wellness Week and I’d like to thank everyone involved for their fantastic efforts to make it all happen. We are committed to nurturing and enhancing the wellbeing of our people – not just this week or this year but always. It’s so important to have a positive culture where people genuinely want to be, where each individual is valued and supported.”
