The deadline for organisations to complete the annual Thriving at Work survey into workplace provision of support around mental health has now been extended to this coming Friday, 5th November.
This has been as a result of many organisations asking for extra time to gather information as a result of annual leave due to last week's half term break.
Last year we sampled the 250 of the 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’s Thriving at Work report - published in 2017.
This year we have widened our ambitions even further to produce a report which is true;y representative of where we, as a sector sit against government standards.
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.
We ask that you are please as candid as you can possibly be so that we can produce a true, reflective picture around mental health across the whole of the infrastructure sector and not just in the “Highways Bubble.”
We hope, in some way, that this will contribute to a continuous improvement in not only awareness but also organisations approach to workplace mental health.
Together we can make a difference, increase education and support our people.
