At KerrySciTech, we are promoting Kerry as a location for science, technology and engineering talent. The link between wellbeing and performance has been long established. Research shows that employers who help staff achieve a better balance in their working lifestyle are rewarded with a higher performing and productive workforce – increasing retention levels and attracting new recruits. KerrySciTech has been setting out a positive vision for the future of our workplaces in Kerry and have put a number of actions in place to deliver this, to ensure that wellbeing is at the centre of our employees’ workplace.
This has included sharing tips and resources for employers and employees who want to be mindful of their mental health, especially during the COVID-19 crisis.
Be Mindful of Your Mental Health
With us all practising social distancing, schools and businesses closing and many of us working from home for the first time, we find ourselves in a new reality. High levels of anxiety is normal during this unprecedented situation but we must all make an effort on staying calm and checking in on our own well-being as well as the well-being of others. Over the next few weeks, we will be sharing tips and resources to make sure that you are taking care of your mental health during this time.
We have also partnered with I Am Here, the fastest growing mental health and wellbeing programme in the world to gift our members with online learning and activation support until September 2020. Help to create a culture where it’s ok not to feel ok; and it’s absolutely ok to ask for help. We will be sharing further information to assist you throughout the coming weeks. See our I Am Here page for more information.
