With the ever increasing need to approach employee benefits with diversity, we’ve just turned our attention towards mental wellbeing by being the first company on the Island to provide our staff with access to Mente.

Mente specialise in mental health and safety in the workplace by delivering a service through an e-learning and monitoring portal. Through the Mente online platform employees are provided with resources to help them understand mental health, as well as pathways to gaining support for a whole array of issues including debt management, bereavement and addictions.

Commenting from an employee’s perspective, James, a MAC account executive says “The portal looks great, it’s interactive and has so much information.  The courses count towards your CPD and such things like improving your resilience and ability to manage stress are invaluable in so many different roles”

All employers have a moral and legal duty of care to their staff. Through Mente, staff are able to provide anonymous feedback to the employer by completing surveys on workplace practices affecting mental health. Employers are able to track absence, access professional and legal support as well as a plethora of resources such as policies, risk assessment templates and guidance.

Nigel, our MD comments, “Mente is about early intervention.  It provides employees with the tools to be able to manage their own mental wellbeing along with the knowledge that it is fully supported by their workplace.  When so much stress can be attributed to work, isn’t it a great idea that all the support for coping with it, along with other issues outside, can come directly from work.  We’re really pleased to be able to offer this new resource to our staff and hopefully encourage more companies on the Island to follow suit.”
