Why has this course been developed?
Somerset’s economy is predominantly made up of small businesses: 76% of the County’s businesses have fewer than 5 employees and a further 13% have 5-9 employees. SMEs are the backbone of our economy, it’s a sector bursting with talent, entrepreneurship and potential. It is also one of the worst performing in terms of employee health outcomes, with one-third of SME employees experiencing a mental health problem during their working life (CIPD, 2016).
So how can we develop a toolkit specifically for the SME? New Leaf has been working on this for sometime alongside the Royal Society of Arts and Manufacturing. At a time when there is a national focus on productivity the inescapable conclusion is that it is massively in the interest of employers to prioritise and invest far more in improving mental health. Many SMEs say that they struggle to access mental health provision due to the costs involved or they do not know what to buy to best support their employees. This workshop will provide a good introduction to Mental Health and equip you with a toolkit that you can start using in your business.
Putting well being at the heart of workplace design for GIG workers and SMES will allow us to grow a new world of work where we can look after our well being and engage in this new economy and feel well in our being.
