Mental health and work

Episode 7,  Oct 08, 2020, 10:30 AM

We hear from Alastair Campbell, former communications adviser to UK prime minister Tony Blair, and Sean Elson of Pinsent Masons about operating under pressure while dealing with depression; and from Philip Aiken of Barclays and Kate Dodd of Pinsent Masons about practical measures companies can take, and about creating a ten point charter to help them do better. 

The workplace and mental health are closely intertwined – work can be the cause of problems, and issues can express themselves in the workplace. Organisations that don’t improve their culture are at risk of failing their people, while those that do change have a chance to attract the best people for longer.
