Event description

Description

To celebrate World Mental Health Day Time to Change West Sussex have organised an event to highlight one of the great tools you can use in your business to end stigma and discrimination - The Time to Change Employer Pledge.

If you are an employer or an employee looking to learn more about how you can support employees with looking after their mental health come along on the 13th October and find out more about how the Time to Change Employer Pledge can support you and your business.

At the event you will hear local employers (including Southern Water and Chichester District Council) who have signed the Pledge. They will explain how working towards and signing it has improved their organisation. You will also hear testimonies from employees who have benefited from working in an organisation committed to supporting staff around mental health. The manager of the national Time to Change Employer Team will talk to you about the process around signing the Employer Pledge and the support available to your organisation to take this forward. You will have the time to ask questions and share experiences with other employers. In addition, there will be an opportunity to find out information about organisations that help you to support employee mental health and wellbeing.


Looking after the mental health of your employees makes business sense: tackling stigma can make a real difference to sickness absence rates, staff wellbeing and productivity, and retention. Since signing the Employer Pledge, 95% of employers said it had a positive impact on their organisation.
