  1. Thurston Group joins the Mental Health Charter

    Comments Off on Thurston Group joins the Mental Health Charter

    We’re delighted to announce that we’ve signed up to the Mental Health Charter. Solidifying our commitment to improving mental health within our workplace and raising awareness to end the stigma surrounding it, enabling more people to open up. By signing the charter, we’re committing to the principles of the Mental Health Charter and pledge to provide mental health awareness across our business, both internally and externally.

    Looking after our mental health is important, especially after over 16 months of instability. It’s been tough for all of us. With the pandemic not only affecting the way we live and work but having a significant impact on our mental health. It’s important that we look out for each other and make sure we recognise the signs of poor mental health. 

    With more people than ever adjusting to new life working from home, it has improved our work/life balance but has also led to people working longer hours despite not having a commute. This can lead to burnout, stress and poor mental health. And with the vaccine rollout and restrictions being slowly lifted, people may start to feel anxious or overwhelmed, especially as people move from working at home and back into an office setting. We need to ensure that everyone is getting the help they need to adjust to the ‘new normal’.  

    Good health and mental wellbeing are really important to us when it comes to both staff and clients. We’re looking to make sure that the workplace culture at Thurston’s is a healthy one, and that’s why we’ve joined the Mental Health Charter. If you or your organisation would like more information on the Mental Health Charter, or want to sign up yourself, you can head to their website.

This strengthens local representation and the support they provide. It also allows the Chamber to recognise the individual needs of the businesses across the region. Providing a tailored service so businesses can benefit from more localised networking events, conferences and business support services. 

    We’re building a brand new social value plan. Which will see us working with multiple groups to give back and improve the lives of those living and working in the local community.
