Preparing for a mentally healthy workplace in 2021

The beginning of a new year is the right time to think about what type of environment you would like to build for your organisation before the year’s end. 2020 has created both good and bad change in the workplace – some to keep, some that will revert and others will impact the way organisations engage moving forward.

The new year is the time to hit the reset button and look at 2021 as a clean slate, or simply an opportunity to revisit your existing mental health and wellbeing activities through the lens of a new year with different challenges.
