WORKPLACE MENTAL WELLBEING POLICY

The need for a workplace mental wellbeing policy
Mental health and stress are associated with many of the leading causes of disease and disability in our society. Promoting and protecting the mental wellbeing of the workforce is important for individuals’ physical health, social wellbeing and productivity and is something the Larkfleet Group of Companies takes very seriously.

Larkfleet recognises that many factors in the workplace influence the mental wellbeing of individual employees, particular departments or organisations as a whole. Understanding and addressing the factors which affect people’s mental wellbeing at work have a wide range of benefits, both for individuals and the organisation.

Mental wellbeing in the workplace is relevant to all employees and everyone can contribute to improved mental wellbeing at work. Addressing workplace mental wellbeing can help strengthen the positive, protective factors of employment, reduce risk factors for mental health and improve general health. It can also help promote the employment of people who have experienced mental health problems and support them once they are at work.

The workplace mental wellbeing policy covers the following aspects of mental health and wellbeing.
