The Charter is but one part of the Mindful Employer initiative, which is aimed at increasing awareness of mental health in the workplace.
Becki Ross, head of HR commented: “At Morson, we have the Employee Assistance Service, providing bespoke advice and support to help our people with their issues. In light of signing the Charter, I look forward to developing new initiatives to raise the profile on mental wellbeing across the Group.”
