Newry Employers “Mind Your Business”

ByNJGiUCcAAwIki

AMH are holding an employment conference in Newry as part of their week of of events to mark World Mental Health Day.

“Mind Your Business” in the Canal Court Hotel on Wednesday 8th October will provide managers and business owners with guidance on how to support their staff’s mental wellbeing and create a culture which enables staff to remain productive, as well as providing an overview of the law surrounding these issues.

Corporate resilience is essential for businesses and services to survive and grow. To strengthen corporate resilience requires strengthening the resilience of the workforce, together with ensuring the cultural environment for the workforce clearly links the wellbeing of individuals to their performance and the performance of the organisation as a whole.

AMH’s Chief Executive David Babington explains;

“Stress and depression are at the highest levels they have ever been, and this is causing huge problems both to individual employees and the organisations they work for. Last year alone, mental health cost the Northern Ireland Economy £790 million. Mental health problems are also one of the largest contributing factors to long term absenteeism. Many individuals and organisations are facing uncertainty, job cuts and a period of great change, and against this background, keeping people engaged and performing well, can seem like an uphill battle.”

This year key note speakers include representatives of HSENI, The Law Centre, The Labour Relations Agency, Allstate Northern Ireland, Business in the Community, a Clinical Psychologist and Action Mental Health.

The event will take place on Wednesday 8th October 10am – 1pm at Canal Court Hotel, Newry. Places cost £30 per delegate and include lunch. Book your place online at w
