Mental Health – No change unless we all change!

Come and hear about an exclusive venture between MAD and Mercer Marsh Benefits, changing how we talk about mental health in the workplace.

Mental health in the workplace cannot simply be another tick box. To achieve sustainable change that both supports your people and your organisational culture and business performance is not only a difficult balance, but without true business engagement, is impossible to achieve. This workshop will showcase new methods being adopted by businesses to achieve high levels of engagement, culture change and that all important ‘leadership buy in’.

This workshop leaders are Nick McClelland, Chief Growth Officer, Alana Rae, Specialties Growth Leader and Wolfgang Seidl, Partner, Workplace Health Consulting Leader – all with Mercer Marsh Benefits.

Know your numbers: why measurement matters and what to measure

There is growing recognition amongst employers that the impact of health and wellbeing programmes is determined using data and market intelligence. But many are struggling to access the right data and harness the key insights that will maximise impact for both employees and for the business. Join this masterclass to:

Consider how and where to access data that leads to tailored, rather than generic interventions
Understand the benefits of getting granular with your data and what MI really matters
Consider the role of behavioural health data and how this can compliment other sources you may be using
The difference between proactive versus reactive types of data, and why you need a balance of both

This workshop leaders are Kate Whitelock, Head of Wellbeing and Jonathan Roomer, Co-founder and Head of Customer Success – both with YuLife.

Meeting the wellbeing needs of the next generation entering the workforce

While many aspects of the pandemic experience are universal, the painful effects have not been evenly distributed. Reports suggest that female carers, young people and some ethnic minorities are amongst those who have been disproportionately affected. What does this mean for employers and how do you need to prepare to meet the wellbeing needs of the next generation entering the workforce? For this workshop, Investors in People has brought together a panel of young leaders working in a range of different environments, representing diverse backgrounds and cultural heritages to share their pandemic perspectives. Invaluable insights for any employer who wants to ensure they attract, support and retain the next generation of talent entering the workforce.

The workshop Chaired by Paul Devoy, Chief Executive, Investors in People with input from Dr Joanna Abeyie MBE, NED, Investors in People & Founder, Blue Moon, Jack Parsons, CEO, The Youth Group and Samah Rafiq, Quality Coordinator, Coca-Cola

The MAD World Summit is on Thursday 21st October, in-person at 133 Houndsditch in Central London. The Summit is the go-to event for employers who want to Make A Difference to workplace culture, mental health and wellbeing.
