Capgemini is proud to have been awarded Silver once again in Mind’s annual Workplace Wellbeing Index: the listing that celebrates the good work employers are doing to support positive mental health while providing an industry benchmark of best policy and practice. The ‘Silver’ award recognises our work to promote employees’ mental well-being, demonstrating progress and impact over time.
Now more than ever, the importance of maintaining a strong support structure for employees’ mental well-being is clear; we are glad to have an approach in place that our colleagues can rely on, having worked with Mind for several years to continually shape and improve our offerings.
We remain committed to promoting positive mental health, as evident in our Active Inclusion strategy. Our successful Mind submission highlights just some of our achievements in this respect:
We have now mobilised 115 Mental Health Champions across the UK, all trained by Mind, and equipped to provide support and advice to colleagues. 19 of these Champions have recently been trained during isolation to bolster the level of support available to our people;
Provided an NHS-approved wellbeing app free to all employees, helping them recognise and tackle stress and anxiety;
Produced and shared ‘This Is Me’ video on mental health, sharing real life experiences of mental health issues experienced by some of our employees;
Launched our ‘Now You See Me’ campaign on Invisible Disabilities which highlights the impact on mental health that having an invisible disability may have;
Demonstrated senior leadership support and sponsorship through communications, videos and open conversations on wellbeing.
Capgemini UK Executive Sponsor of Active Inclusion’s Mental Health stream, Rory Burghes comments:
“Being recognised for our ongoing commitment to mental health makes me very proud. Proud of our organisation, and all the people who are working to ensure we create an inclusive and supportive environment for our teams. This award demonstrates that we as a business are taking positive action to ensure we promote and support mental well-being.”
