One in four people in the UK will report a mental health condition at some point during their working life.
At Unipart, Mental Health Awareness Week was highlighted throughout the business, with colleagues showing their support across multiple sites.
The team at NHS Supply Chain Bridgewater partnered with Rethink Mental Illness, who encouraged colleagues to take notice of their surroundings by taking pictures and sharing with their site. All submissions were shared on the site’s Wellbeing Board. The activity inspired colleagues to spend time enjoying the outdoors.
Adopting the idea from the team at NHS Supply Chain Normanton, Unipart Logistics colleagues at Nuneaton and Magna Park enjoyed the fresh air whilst creating artwork on their windows which discussed stigmas and shared information surrounding mental health.
Unipart is committed to supporting colleagues and their mental health, by encouraging discussions, providing safe spaces and sharing resources for both internal and external support.
As part of Unipart WorkWell, the Group’s wellbeing strategy, guides are in place to equip Managers and Leaders with the skills to signpost and ensure individuals get the support they need.
