Mental health in the workplace, commonly referred to as workplace well-being is now a popular phrase being used by many organisations. It is great to see so many companies making the efforts to highlight the importance of employees looking after both physical and mental health.

As the phrase, workplace wellbeing becomes more popular; it is important organisations do not have a tick box approach to seem as though they have procedures in place for their employees. Rather, embed best practices throughout their organisation, so that all of their employees are fully aware of the policies in place to help them.

It is no longer enough for companies to passively promote positive mental health and workplace wellbeing. Wellbeing initiatives and strategies now need to be incorporated into the organisational culture.

Céline Crawford is Chief Communications Officer at leading betting exchange Smarkets. Céline will be sharing her practical tips at Workforce Engagement; on how organisations can ensure well-being policies are embedded into the workplace culture.
