ICP Nurseries Launches A Company Wellbeing Policy

01 September 2020

ICP Nurseries have announced they have launched a company Wellbeing Policy. The aim of this launch is to provide mental health support in the workplace.

We all have mental health just as we have physical health – it moves up and down along a spectrum from good to poor. Considering how much time we spend at work it’s not surprising that workplace environments and culture affect our wellbeing.

Promoting and protecting staff’s wellbeing in the workplace is important to ICP Nurseries. This guide is provided to help you understand what workplace wellbeing is and to assist you in recognising the signs and understand the potential causes of poor mental wellbeing. It also includes proactive steps you can take to reduce and avoid poor mental wellbeing and indicates how to access support.

Mental wellbeing in the workplace is relevant to all employees and everyone can contribute to improving wellbeing at work. Addressing workplace wellbeing can strengthen the positive, protective factors of employment, reduce risk factors for poor mental wellbeing, support individuals whilst at work and improve general health.

The aim of this policy is:

  • To create a workplace environment that promotes mental wellbeing of all employees
  • To remove barriers surrounding mental health illnesses and provide support for all employees
  • To improve staff morale and ensure all employees feel valued and respected in their role
  • To support all employees to remain in work when experiencing poor mental health.
