SUPPORTING WELLBEING AND EMPLOYEE MENTAL HEALTH

As we approach World Mental Health Day on October 10th, it’s critical to reflect on the importance of mental health in the workplace. This year’s theme, “Mental health is a universal human right,” emphasises the need to promote and protect mental health for all. At Sourcey, we take this theme to heart, striving to create a workplace that supports the well-being and mental health of our employees. We recognise that good mental health is essential to our overall health and well-being.

Here are 5 ways we support the mental health of our staff and acknowledge it as a universal right:

1. Embracing the Sunshine: Outdoor Meetings

At Sourcey, we’re all about sunshine and fresh air! That’s why we encourage our employees to get out in the sunshine whenever possible, even during working hours. We’ve introduced the concept of “walking meetings,” where teams can discuss projects and ideas while strolling outdoors. It’s like a breath of fresh air for your brain, reducing stress and boosting creativity. We believe in taking the boardroom outside and letting our minds roam free. This not only promotes physical health but also allows employees to clear their minds, reduce stress, and boost creativity. It’s a simple yet effective way to support mental wellbeing in the workplace.

2. Kindness as a Core Value

One of our key values at Sourcey is kindness. We care about each other’s well-being, mental health included. That means being understanding, empathetic, and always having each other’s backs. When you’re part of Sourcey, you’re part of a community that values kindness and supports each other through thick and thin. By prioritising kindness, we create a safe space where employees feel comfortable discussing their mental health concerns and seeking support when needed.

3. Flexible Family-Friendly Work Hours

Life happens, right? We get it. And we understand that maintaining a work-life balance is crucial for mental health. That’s why we offer flexible, family-friendly work hours. Whether you’re juggling parenting duties, need some “me” time, or just want a schedule that suits your life, we’ve got your back. We believe in a work-life balance that keeps you happy and your mental health in tip-top shape.

4. The Role of Our People and Culture Manager

At Sourcey, we have a dedicated People and Culture Manager who plays a vital role in shaping our company culture and ensuring employee wellbeing is a top priority. They are responsible for making sure that everyone at the company is feeling good, connected, and inspired. A cheerleader for workplace harmony, they help us create a happy and inclusive working environment where employees feel heard, valued, and supported. From wellness programs to friendly chats, they’ve got it covered.

5. Promoting Awareness and Action

World Mental Health Day isn’t just about awareness; it’s about taking action too. At Sourcey, we’re all in. We regularly chat about mental health, offer resources, and foster a culture of caring. We want our employees to feel comfortable talking about mental health and know that seeking help is a sign of strength, not weakness. Our goal? Empowering our team to put their mental health first. From outdoor meetings to our core value of kindness, flexible work hours, and the guidance of our People and Culture Manager, we are dedicated to creating a workplace that prioritises mental health as a universal right. We believe that by promoting awareness, fostering a culture of kindness, and taking concrete actions, we can contribute to a world where everyone’s mental health is valued and protected. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of our employees and set an example for others to follow.
