Today is #TimeToTalkDay2021 and we marked the occasion with a virtual tea and talk session! ☕
Our Mental Health First Aiders used this opportunity to draw on their training and explain the importance of talking about our worries or problems with one another. Do you need someone to talk to? Our Mental Health First Aiders are on hand to support our Clients and Candidates too. Meet the CUK Mental Health First Aiders here.
Now more than ever it is so important that we are talking about our Mental Health so, as a company, we took this opportunity to brainstorm ways we could keep in touch and keep the conversations going. Here's what we came up with:
☕ Weekly virtual tea & talk sessions
🏆 Company competitions for everyone to get involved in
❓ Virtual quiz's
Are you going to give any of these a go?
