Mental Health & Wellbeing Lab
Run by Fresh Thinking Labs and MINDFUL EMPLOYER, this innovative event is based on a small, closed network of companies and public sector employers committed to exploring and developing future-focused workplaces that generate positive mental health and well-being for all through healthy and engaging work. There are spaces available at the next event in Leeds on Wednesday 28 March – click here for more details.
To Christine May, who has provided administrative support for MINDFUL EMPLOYER for near 10 years. MINDFUL EMPLOYER would not have grown so much without Chris’ dedication and enthusiasm for her role and she has enabled that growth to run smoothly from an administrative point of view, especially for all the Charter signatories with whom she has regular contact. We will miss her and wish her well in her retirement.
A successor has been appointed and will be starting in a few weeks’ time. We hope to have a temporary replacement in post soon but in the meantime please direct any admin queries to Richard.firstname.lastname@example.org and any training or workshop enquiries to email@example.com
Thank you also to the 300 or so people who visited our stand at the recent Health & Wellbeing at Work Conference. We were delighted with the level of interest shown.
