Stress Matters has joined forces with The Meetings Industry Association (mia) to provide support and help members make wellbeing a strategic priority.
Launched during Blue Monday in January, the new collaboration will offer mental health first aid training and wellness manager programmes alongside webinars and discounted courses help members reduce the stress of their teams.
Recent surveys conducted by the mia revealed that while sustainability is a key part of the business strategy for 90% of organisations working in the sector, a third admit that they still operate without a mental health strategy.
“Organisations want to look after the wellbeing of their staff, but often lack the expertise and resource to do this effectively,” explained Stress Matters Founder, Laura Capell-Abra. “We have proof that positive wellbeing increases the productivity of teams and ultimately profitability.
“It’s crucial that wellbeing is given its rightful prominence within any sustainability strategy, promoting work life balance while supporting and acknowledging the diverse needs of individuals and groups in the organisation.”
