This year time to talk day is on February the 4th and focuses on the power of small. A small conversation about mental health has the power to make a big difference.
Time to Talk Day is the day that we get the nation talking about mental health. This year’s event might look a little different, but at times like this open conversations about mental health are more important than ever.
Apollo has always had a unique culture, one that has remained and strengthened during the pandemic and working from home. We put our employee’s health and wellbeing at the forefront and do everything possible to ensure all of our people have the time, space and opportunity to reach out for help. Our culture is one of openness and understanding, with senior members of staff talking openly about mental wellbeing and how they have managed throughout the lockdown.
We have a dedicated mental health resource, we elected buddies at the beginning of the pandemic to ensure no one was left behind and teams are encouraged to check in daily.
As well as this our friends at Global Energy Group have organized a series of lunch and learns focusing on mental wellbeing, mental toughness and children’s mental health and wellbeing this month.
One of our core values is enjoyment and anyone that knows Apollo knows we live true to this every day, it is important we all enjoy work and we work hard to make sure that everyone feels cared for physically and mentally in order to enjoy their work.
We wish to encourage everyone, especially this year, to check in on others, maybe even someone you wouldn’t think to, someone you would normally speak to in the office – it’s the small things that can make a huge difference and work towards ending mental health stigma.
