Mental Health in the Workplace

1 in 7 people in the UK experience mental health problems in the workplace. Danny can help get your business and workforce back into a healthy state of mind.

1 in 7 people in the UK experience mental health problems in the workplace. The various impacts of this cost UK businesses £8 billion every year. Danny has seen the effects that this has had on the restaurant business and business as a whole.

Through his experience managing his own teams, Danny will provide coaching and techniques that are aimed at getting employees back into a healthy state of mind. The techniques will focus on some of the most common mental problems, anxiety and depression, and also focus on more business-orientated issues, such as stress and workplace conflicts.

To start with, Danny can help you better understand your staff on a more personal level, which is incredibly important in maintaining a good work relationship. You’ll want your employees to feel comfortable telling you about their stresses and issues, and having empathy is one of the most important steps towards that.

Danny will also teach you the importance of allowing employees to have control of their work. It’s easy to feel disaffected and perform poorly when you don’t have a say in what you’re working on, and that’s certainly the same for people working under you.

When it comes to mental health, it’s often best to develop an action plan with your employees to help them through the journey to recovery. This includes:

  • What the problem is
  • How it was identified
  • The proposed solution
  • Actions to be taken to achieve this
  • Dates by which each action should be achieved
  • How staff will be kept informed on progress
  • A date to review the plan and see if it has achieved its aim.

Your employees are your most valuable asset. Treat them well and your business will thrive.
