Mental health and wellbeing support for our team

The last couple of years have been a bit of rollercoaster, with many experiencing mental health challenges as a result of the Covid pandemic. Life has been tough for everyone, but for some more so than others, with the charity Mind revealing that more people are experiencing mental health challenges than ever, with the number of calls to their support line doubling on some occasions.

These frightening statistics make it pretty clear that we need to do everything we can to support our team, whatever challenges they’re facing.

Cue our search to find the perfect match in Spectrum Life

After lots of research to find the perfect solution for our team, we’re pleased to announce that we’ve partnered with Spectrum Life to make 24/7 mental health support, counselling, therapy and coaching available to every member of our team across the Great Things Together Group.

Operations Director, James Beardmore said “The mental health epidemic is all too real, and can impact anyone at any time. Our team is our number one priority, so supporting them through whatever challenges they may face in their lives is fundamental to looking after them. And Spectrum Life allows us to do just that. Spectrum not only gives our team access to counselling and therapy, but they provides options to receive parenting coaching, career advice and financial guidance, plus access to fitness and dietary support.”

James continued, “Many businesses train members of the team as Mental Health First Aiders, however we understand that people don’t always feel comfortable sharing personal information with colleagues, especially if it’s someone they haven’t built a rapport with. We hope that this new service will allow our team to proactively take care of their mental health and wellbeing, making them happier overall.”

The launch of Spectrum Life is the latest addition to our people, wellbeing and benefits strategy, with so much more available to make sure every member of our team feels happy, healthy and valued. Ultimately, we want to create the very best place to work so this is yet another step in the right direction.
