Ireland’s National #WorkplaceWellbeingDay takes place today, Friday, April 29th, 2022. The day serves to raise awareness of the importance of employee wellbeing.
KTL recognises and celebrates this day and we’re happy to launch a new initiative in support of the mental health and wellbeing of all our staff.
Selected staff are being trained in Mental Health First Aid, which will help with:
- Spotting the early signs and symptoms of mental ill-health
- Starting a supportive conversation with a colleague who may be experiencing a mental health issue or suffering from emotional distress
- Assess the risk of suicide or self-harm
Having mental health first aiders in the workplace will raise awareness of mental health issues and reduce the stigma around mental health. This promotes early intervention, which will aid recovery.
In support of #WorkplaceWellbeingDay, KTL is encouraging all staff to take time out of their busy day and focus on wellbeing by logging on to the Laya Healthcare Digital Gym at 12:30 today to do the on-demand video: 15-minute desk yoga.
All KTL employees have 24/7 access to an Employee Assistance Program - a confidential counselling service that provides support to employees and families.
The EAP provides access to experienced clinical counsellors, for immediate advice and support along with experts in a variety of fields, including financial advisors, legal professionals, career counsellors, and more. To access it, please follow the links:
