What Maxine Palmer, Director and General Manager of Green Enery Switch has to say about Mental Health In The Workplace.


We engaged Mental Health In The Workplace Ltd to deliver Mental Health Awareness training for our managers at Green Energy Switch, as we had identified that stress levels were increasing and suspected that our team were experiencing a greater sense of pressure than we were comfortable with.

We wanted to ensure that we were promoting a positive environment for all our people as we have some significant goals for 2019.

The training was exceptional.  It gave us a really good understanding of mental health in general and enabled some really positive open discussion that we felt helped reduce the stigma that many of us have developed over time.

More significantly, the training around how the human brain works and how stress is created and why, and what we can do as managers to reduce stress in our team was enlightening.

Since the training, we have implemented a new approach to mental health and wellbeing in the organisation and are already seeing improvements in motivation and productivity in the team.

We would highly recommend Mental Health In The Workplace Ltd as their training is not just informative, but also enables a change in mindset and behaviour, from the offset.
