Phenomenal demand forces survey deadline to be extended.
Due to the sheer volume of companies wishing to take part in the Thriving at Work Survey into Workplace Provision around Mental Health, Safer Highways have extended the deadline for completion to 31st October.
Support for employees suffering from poor mental health is now an essential requirement for business.
The aim of this survey, led by Safer Highways, is to benchmark the present mental health provision across the industry.
The question set is based upon the standards set out by the ‘Thriving at Work’ report which was an outcome of the Prime Minister’s review into mental health within business and is not only designed to understand but also direct organisations to the relevant guidance to improve mental health provision in the workplace.
Last year we sampled the 100 biggest organisations who work, not only on the strategic road network, but also who serve to maintain our local roads to establish where we, as a sector, sit against the government report - published in 2017.
This year we have widened our ambitions.
As time moves on and standards improve we also recognise the need to take the survey further and indeed to benchmark ourselves against other sectors.
We realise that this will not be easy and indeed are grateful for the support we have already received from the above sectors.
One of the key things we, as a collective, wanted to achieve from this years survey was an instant improvement plan for all organisations taking part.
This has been developed in collaboration with our partners at Mind and, we hope, will provide an opportunity for organisations to begin the process of effecting real change around mental health instantaneously and not months down the line.
What this effectively means is that within seconds of completing the survey and adding your contact details you will be emailed a comprehensive report which can be presented right unto board level as to how you, as an organisation can effect real organisational change.
Please, we ask passionately, can you complete the survey and indeed join us for the launch of the results which will be presented on 2nd December.
Together we can make a difference, increase education and support our people.
