At Fnality, we fully recognise that employees are our most important assets and good mental health is an important asset in its own right. We were fortunate to have an Agile work practice which allowed the company to respond effectively to the shock of the lockdown restrictions that were introduced at the beginning of the pandemic. Fnality did not view the transition to remote working as a challenge, but instead an opportunity to evolve the company into a more cohesive and outcomes-focused workplace. From the outset, there was a strong emphasis placed on the mental health and wellbeing of our employee’s during the transition period.
The good news is that employees’ mental health does not have to suffer when you work remotely, especially if your organisation and colleagues propose preventative actions. Talking about mental health in the workplace is just as important as identifying the physical health risks through a health and safety assessment.
During the month of October, Fnality will dedicate time to raise awareness internally and externally about mental health and wellbeing in the workplace. Over the coming weeks, we will be posting content related to this important topic including events we are running in the workplace, discussing personal experiences with our colleagues and showcasing some of the initiatives in supporting mental health during remote-working. We hope that through discussing this topic we will continue to erode the stigma often associated with mental health in the workplace.
