Mental Health Awareness week 2023

Mental health awareness is increasingly crucial in the workplace, as more businesses acknowledge the negative effects poor mental health can have on their employees. Anxiety is one of many mental health conditions that can impact individuals in the workforce, and it can significantly affect their job performance.

At DRG Interior & Building Solutions, we prioritise the mental health of our employees. We understand that our work can be demanding and may contribute to feelings of anxiety and stress. Therefore, we take proactive steps to support mental health, creating a positive working environment where employees feel valued and supported.

One way we prioritise mental health is by providing regular training for our team on recognising the signs and symptoms of anxiety and depression. This promotes a culture of openness and honesty, where employees feel comfortable discussing any mental health concerns they may have. Additionally, we offer resources and support, such as an employee assistance program (EAP) that provides access to counselling and other mental health services. We also encourage our team to take regular breaks and offer flexible working arrangements to manage stress and anxiety.

Our focus on mental health has had a significant impact on our employees, with many reporting feeling grateful for the support they have received. They feel more positive, motivated, and better equipped to manage their mental health, resulting in improved job performance.

By providing resources and support to manage anxiety and other mental health conditions, we have created a positive working environment where employees feel valued, supported, and able to do their best work. It's vital that businesses continue to prioritise mental health and support their employees in this regard.
