Safer Highways are delighted to announce the addition of Alastair Campbell to the speaker line up for this years Thriving at Work Survey Report Launch.
A former political aide to Prime Minister Tony Blair, Mr Csmpbell has more recently become an award winning author as well as speaking of his own battles with depression. Mr Campbell will take part via a pre-recorded interview with event chairman Karl Simons which will broadcast as part of the event taking place on the 2nd December 2021. Also speaking at the event are Dame Carol Black, the former advisor to the British Government on the relationship between work and health, Simon Blake, CEO of Mental Health First Aid England and Aimee Cain, Health and Wellbeing Manager at Thames Water. The event acts as the unveiling of the results of the second annual survey into the provision of Workplace support around Mental Health, which this year has seen an unprecedented rise and organisations taking place, crucially many coming from the smaller contractors across our Safer Highways community. The event is strictly limited to a participant audience of 100 people so to secure your place we advise you register your interest in attending as soon as possible. Speaking about Mr Campbell's role, Safer Highways CEO, Kevin Robinson could not hide his delight. He said, "Alastair has long been an advocate of mental health and in his recent book, he talks about the fact that last Christmas he came close to taking his own life. "Covid has, sadly, meant that many of us have experienced higher levels off poor mental health than ever before, so the role of the employer in supporting those we put to work has never been so paramount. "Having shot for the moon in last year's inaugural survey and achieved what many did not believe possible, this year we have gone further with a tailored action plan available immediately and more support for organisations. "I truly believe that the only way organisations will improve will be with a clear understanding of where we currently sit on the equilibrium and am proud that against adversity in unprecedented times we have seen such an increase in those participating in the survey."
