CHANGING THE CONVERSATION AROUND WORKFORCE MENTAL HEALTH

June 2023: It's been a busy few months for Lindsey and Katie sharing the results of the 2023 Workforce State of Mind Survey and talking to employers about why and how they can take action on workforce mental health. Lindsey was invited to the Include Summit in May to speak, and our research was the focus of two sessions at this month's Elevate conference. Our session on Cultural Dynamite explained the business case for intentional action around psychosocial health and safety in the workplace and asked thought leaders if they really know what's going on in their organisation. And, of course, we talked about how employers can take action by signing The Good Work Pledge. Lindsey also shared a stage with EMD UK's Head of Instructor Development, Sue Wilkie, to explore how to take care of frontline instructors as part of EMD UK's showcase at the event.

THIRD UK WORKFORCE STATE OF MIND SURVEY PUBLISHED

 

March 2023: The results of the 2023 Workforce State of Mind survey were launched at Perform X Live on Friday 17 March, and you can now get your free copy of the report hereOpen to anyone in the UK working in fitness and active leisure, the research shines a light on the mental wellbeing of people at all levels of the workforce, as well as asking employers about approaches to protecting and supporting the mental health of their teams.

 

This year, 918 individuals and 68 employers took part. For the third year running, the survey found consistent levels of mental distress reported, and there was a general decline in employers' focus and action around workplace mental health and safety. The good news is that pockets of good practice are emerging.

Taking about this year’s findings, Tara Dillon, CEO, CIMSPA, says: “At a time when employers are battling elevated cost lines due to the energy crisis, we should all be looking at ways to improve efficiencies that deliver a direct and positive return to the bottom line. Creating good work environments where everyone can perform to their full potential not only addresses potential legal questions it also makes good commercial sense, and is quite simply the right thing to do.”
