Thrive at Work West of England
30th September 2020
New support to help improve mental health and wellbeing for businesses and their staff
A new support programme is offering West of England employers help to respond to mental health concerns in the workplace, particularly those arising from Covid-19.
The West of England Combined Authority (WECA) is investing in the two-year Thrive at Work West of England programme, which aims to address the key mental health issues that businesses say are affecting their employees, and impacting productivity.
The package of support, including training resources, is available through WECA’s West of England Growth Hub website West of England Growth Hub LMS. It includes mental health e-learning to equip managers with the confidence and skills to have supportive conversations with their staff about mental health and wellbeing, particularly in these challenging and changing times.
The training is funded by WECA and will be targeted towards small and medium-sized businesses and ethnic minority-led companies to help support those who may have been impacted the most by Covid-19.
