11 May Mental Health Awareness
This week is Mental Health Awareness week, and it is fair to say, certainly over the last year, it has become more important than ever to drive focus onto our Mental Health, especially within the workplace. During this pandemic, millions of us have experienced a Mental Health problem or seen our friends, family and colleagues struggle for the first time.
After over a year of national lockdowns and working from home, many people have been left feeling isolated and not knowing who to turn to, but at Keyzo we believe our employees deserve more. It is important for us to create and maintain a network of support and high morale throughout the company; so, we took it upon ourselves to train a selection of our employees to ensure all staff at Keyzo will still feel connected and motivated during a time of remote working.
At Keyzo, our employee’s welfare is always at the top of our priorities as we endeavour to ensure our teams are happy as well as healthy, and Mental Health plays a huge role in this. That is why we are proud to be able to say that we have a dedicated Welfare Team of fully qualified Mental Health First Aiders (MHFA) who are there to listen to and guide our employees through any difficulties they may be facing, within their work or personal lives.
Over the past twelve months, as our work lives have had to adapt, so have our home lives. Our Welfare Team has been able to help and guide our staff to adjust to the new ways of working. Finding the right work-life balance is essential, and something we at Keyzo have always been strong believers in. Being able to have the support and flexibility at work is vital to be able to maintain good Mental Health.
As a company we have been fortunate enough to continue expanding our team throughout the past year and have now nearly doubled in size. Following the transition to working from home we have been able to introduce fully remote roles and branch out across the country gaining access to new skilled, experienced, and qualified individuals.
With our ever-expanding team not being able to get to know each other around the office in the way we would have liked, we have had to come up with new and exciting ways for our employees to build up relationships with one another. From weekly ‘Buddy Calls’ to our ‘Staff Nights In’ and ‘Welfare Packages’, we have created a healthy and positive work environment.
These interactions have been a crucial way for us to maintain the wellbeing of our employees throughout these challenging times, from the support given by our Welfare Team and the way the company has united to lift-up and inspire one another. We are more aspirational and driven than ever to keep pushing forward and continue our company’s expansion and wellbeing.
