As part of our commitment to the mental health charter (sport and rec alliance) we have made a commitment to better understand the mental wellbeing of our staff.
We have committed to carrying out regular surveys which start to help us understand both the triggers for poor mood, anxiety and burnout but also help us understand what additional support staff need in order to cope and being a mentally resilient mindset.
We are pleased to share some of the interesting results of our most recent survey and commit to supporting with encouraging this conversation in our workplace and commit to this being an ongoing priority within our company moving forward.
