300 NORTH - SUPPORTING THE MINDFUL EMPLOYER INITIATIVE

    300 North are pleased to be a formal signatory to The Charter for Employers who are Positive about Mental Health. The Charter is one element of the MINDFUL EMPLOYER® initiative which is aimed at increasing awareness of mental health in the workplace and supporting businesses in recruiting and retaining staff.
    One in four of us will experience mental ill health at some point in our lives. The World Health Organization defines positive mental health as “a state of well-being in which every individual realizes his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community”.


    300 North Managing Director Paul Connolly says “Poor mental health is so common in today’s society and can affect anyone at any time. As an employer, it is so important to us that we support our team, our workers and the wider community as best we can. We take steps to promote positive mental health by encouraging weekly wellness activities such as team walks (getting everyone away from their desks), a running club, and other fitness activities to benefit our mind and body. We keep our working hours flexible to accommodate individual team members and maintain a sociable and open culture where everyone is respected and their individual views are taken into account. We talk openly about mental health and aim to provide ongoing support and education”.

    A wide range of employers from all over the UK are involved in the MINDFUL EMPLOYER® initiative which gives businesses and organisations easier access to information, practical support, training, networks and assistance from other employers. 300 North are delighted to be part of the initiative and demonstrate our support for positive mental health in the workplace.

    MINDFUL EMPLOYER is a UK-wide initiative run by Workways, part of Devon Partnership NHS Trust. More information at www.mindfulemployer.net
