Knowledge and Consistency

As mental health experts we know that in order to build and maintain strong, resilient workforces you need to provide employees with knowledge. 

And our work in HR has shown us that you need consistency through ongoing support and training, for both managers and employees, to absorb the knowledge and apply it, to create lasting transformation of behaviours and mental health.

That’s why, as workplace wellbeing specialists, our management mental health training, employee wellbeing portal and interactive webinars always follow two key principles: Knowledge and Consistency.
