There has been a lot of media attention around customs workers refusing to get the COVID-19 vaccination.
This week here at EQ Consultants the team acknowledged Mental Health Awareness Week (MHAW) 2020. This year has been challenging for many, so looking after our wellbeing is more important than ever.
MHAW is a reminder that we all have mental health. We understand how fundamental it is to provide a safe working environment that helps uplifts everyone’s mental wellbeing. When your mental wellbeing is strong and the workplace is supportive and inclusive you will feel more engaged in your work, more productive and have higher morale and job satisfaction. Your people provide the greatest potential for success in your business; maintaining optimal mental health at work is too important to be left to chance.
MHAW 2020 is a timely reminder of the simple, everyday actions we can all take to look after our wellbeing. Going forward it is necessary to reimagine a workplace that prioritises mental health and wellbeing. The Mental Health Foundation NZ do a fantastic job to raise awareness of mental health and the practical tips and guides to help with conversations around mental wellbeing in the workplace.
