Go Green Business Breakfast: Science of Happy in Workplaces- Green Capital
This networking breakfast is in partnership with Go Green and Triodos Bank and is an ideal chance to meet and network with local organisations, to hear some of the latest research and to discuss what we should – and possibly shouldn’t – value in workplaces to keep us happy and healthy.
We all (hopefully) know that we need to feel valued, productive and at ease to produce our best work, but how can we make sure that our workplaces are contributing to this? With more and more importance attached to emotional satisfaction rather than security and financial aspects, how can we make sure we are attracting and retaining the best employees? How can we tell if our workplace is healthy and how can we change it if it isn’t? What might smart technology tell us about the needs of staff?
Nicola is a HR Manager, a Mental Health & Wellbeing Trainer & Counsellor. Through her work at the architectural firm Stride Treglown, they obtained an Employee Health & Wellbeing Award, where they secured top accreditations across the board, the highest award given to a company in the UK. Since then, Nicola has established ‘Nine to Thrive’, a company for social good, (sponsored by Stride Treglown) helping businesses to implement a culture of wellbeing.
Nicola believes – and the research suggests – that it is in the best interest of all our businesses to find ways to improve the mental health of our staff. Nicola will share with you why Stride Treglown are rolling out Mental Health First Aid across their business, what that means for the practice and why only now are we talking about mental health at work.
