Event shines light on employee wellbeing

Colleagues from businesses and oragnisations in the Black Country and beyond attended our latest workplace wellbeing event last Friday in Wolverhampton.

Hosted by the City of Wolverhampton College, this event, the third workplace wellbeing event organised by Dudley Mind, focused on the role of CSR in improving employee wellbeing.

Delegates heard about both the business and employee benefits which can be achieved through developing CSR within an organisation with presentations by Fran Kenwrick from Business in The Community and Ade Keasey from Fujitsu.

The wellbeing networks are all about sharing ideas and good practice and so delegates also had the opportunity to share their own ideas about CSR with the group.

Paul Owen, Wellbeing and engagement manager at Midland Heart said: “Once again Dudley Mind have held an interesting and worthwhile event, increasing awareness and insight into options for CSR. Great for meeting like-minded professionals and sharing knowledge.”

The next event will be in June (date to be confirmed) in Wolverhampton and will be a joint collaboration between Dudley Mind and Lloyds Bank in the Black Country at their city centre branch.

Based on feedback from delegates the theme will be Mental Health First Aid, the respected and accredited mental health training course which is increasingly being used by employers to improve mental wellbeing within their organisations. There will also be a talk from Lloyds about how they approach employee engagement and wellbeing.
